Product Notes

CUSTÓDIO CASTELO is the world's leading player of the Portuguese fado guitar, the instrument that helped make fado music Portugal's Intangible Cultural Heritage (UNESCO). Like Carlos Paredes, Custódio Castelo creates groundbreaking new sounds that have promoted the Portuguese Guitar to a concert instrument that can be played solo or as accompaniment. His unique Portuguese guitar, handmade from an oak root by master Oscar Cardoso, is capable of fine nuances of emotion, and he uses them well, especially for melancholy, but also for a sense of jubilation. On this release Custódio Castelo plays fados made famous by the Queen of Fado, Amália Rodrigues. "Custódio Castelo is the world's leading exponent of the Guitarra Portuguesa, the instrument that gives the country's fado music it's poignant song."
