Carminho has been hailed as arguably the finest fado singer from her generation, a promise she seeks to confirm with her second album, Alma. Once again working with producer Diogo Clemente and the same A-list musicians featured on her acclaimed 2009 debut, Carminho lends her exquisite voice to an immaculate repertoire that includes both fado standards and new compositions, some even penned by the singer herself. Alma is also poised to become a success in the world music circuit, particularly in Spain, where Carminho's popularity grew following her 2011 duet with Spanish romantic pop singer Pablo Alborán, which reached the top of the charts.
