Don’t misunderstand, we love Fado: it’s beautiful, and it speaks so well to the Portuguese soul. But sometime is seems like Fado is the only Portuguese music around, which just isn’t true.
Here is “Um Contra a Outro” (One Against the Other) by Deolinda, a young band that mixes the traditional with the irreverent.
It’s a great song for spring, as well. The chorus says (paraphrase):
Get out of the house,
Come with me
Out into the street,
Forget your responsibilities.
No matter how much you might win,
You lose the most if you stay in!
