Gisela João

Three years after the debut self-titled album, Gisela João releases her much anticipated second album in November 2016. It is called "Nua" and are Fados, just as she feels them and likes them to sing.

"Nua" honors some of her greatest musical references - Amália Rodrigues, Beatriz da Conceição, Argentina Santos, Chavela Vargas and Cartola -, gives voice to the words of some present time poets - like the Portuguese rapper Capicua or the poet Ana Sofia Paiva - and surprises us by showing that, from whence it comes - and comes from many places - the music that passes through the voice of Gisela João is always fado.

In the past few years, Gisela João performed numerous concerts in the main venues and festivals of Portugal and throughout the rest of Europe (including the recent edition of WOMEX) as well as in the United States, Brazil or Angola; she was honored with the awards attributed to the album "Gisela João" by the majority of the Portuguese media (Expresso, BLITZ, Público, Time Out, GQ ...) and two prizes of enormous prestige (Amália Rodrigues and José Afonso).

More recently, Gisela brought here electric live concert to various stages, such as the Coliseus in Lisboa and Porto, Eurosonic, New York and more!
