Never heard of her, but then again I don't listen to music sung in Portuguese much.

WAT - Well, I mainly know Brazilian Portuguese music, but I'd recommend Amalia too. She was sort of the Ellis Regina of Lisbon.

I'm such a drama queen inside that o fado speaks to me perfectly. You must check out Mariza if you haven't -- especially her first album, Fado em Mim. I've seen her about three times live.

Now are you suggesting that there might be a fado drama queen lurking inside of me? Okay, likely so. I've heard a couple of ditties by Mariza on KCRW but have yet to have the pleasure of seeing her live.
