  • Ana Moura Announces New Album “Casa Guilhermina”, Shares New Song “Arraial Triste”

  • Portuguese Fado singer-songwriter Ana Moura announced her seventh studio album “Casa Guilhermina” would be released on November 11, 2022.
    It is her first album in eight years since the 2015 album “Moura”.
    The album named after Ana Moura's Angolan Grandmother and features collaborators include Afro electro producer Pedro Da Lindha, contemporary Portuguese artist Pedro Mafama, and long-standing Prince guitarist Mike Scott.
    From the album, she released a new song “Arraial Triste” on October 21, 2022.
    The song makes reference to rustic Portuguese national festivals that celebrate saints' days.
    It was written by Ana Moura and Pedro Mafama. Produced by Pedro Mafama and João Bessa.
    “Since I was young, I used to go to these festivals every year,” Ana Moura said of the song. “The song is a description of desencontro, which is when people are unable to meet despite wanting to. I'm saying that I'm on the streets walking at night in the middle of the festival, but still feeling alone. I cannot find him because he's somewhere else in the festival. But at the same time, I say, 'Tonight, I will dance with myself under the full moon.'”
  • After the 6th studio album “Moura”, she met younger musicians and producers, many who were merging the rhythms of Angola and Cape Verde with Portuguese soul in Lisbon.
    She said, “My mum is Angolan and my father is Portuguese, so this was my story, too. I grew up listening to Angolan music and I always felt very close to it, but I had never explored it myself.”
    Then, Ana Moura worked with two producers Pedro Da Lindha and Pedro Mafama on the new album during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.
    Before the new project, she had also begun to write her own music. “During the period that I stopped working for a bit, I lost my best friend, who was also my cousin,” she said. “I wrote a song to her. That's how everything started.” As a fadista, Ana felt that she could never write her own music. “In Portugal, and specifically in fado, we have these great poets. It's such a big responsibility to write something. But I was writing this song for her and I wanted to share that with people.”
