    Amália Hoje

    To mark the 10th anniversary of fado legend Amália Rodrigues’s death, Nuno Gonçalves of the Portuguese band The Gift was invited to re-interpret selections of Rodrigues’s vast catalogue and was given full liberty to choose the compositions and his collaborators and to create new arrangements. For this homage, Nuno created Hoje with three of Portugal’s most well known musicians: Sonia Tavares (The Gift), Fernando Ribeiro (Moonspell) and Paulo Praça (Plaza). They took nine fados immortalized by Amália Rodrigues and re-interpreted them with a contemporary approach. The resulting Amália Hoje has gone triple platinum in Portugal and catapulted Hoje into the international arena.
