Marta Pereira da Costa (Portugal), Fado guitarist

Festival Artists

Marta Pereira da Costa is the first and currently the only professional Fado guitarist worldwide. The Portuguese guitar is very closely associated with Fado, and Marta, not forgetting the roots and tradition, risked new sounds and sought to give voice to her instrument through the world of Jazz, World Music and Portuguese Music. Marta was honored in 2014 by the Amália Rodrigues Foundation with the “Musician of the Year Award”.
