With an absolutely singular voice and timbre, Gisela João is a central figure and one of the most important interpreters of Portuguese music History. In the Spring of 2021 she released her third album, AuRora [Dawn], her most personal and intimate record, where for the first time she revealed her gift for writing and composing.
With four remixes of songs from AuRora, Gisela João keeps declaring her love to the dancefloor, an old time passion and many times mentioned in interviews, in which she assumes having grown up between electronic music parties and traditional fado.
Miguel Esteves Cardoso, a portuguese writer, said: "Amália Rodrigues was the great fado singer of the 20th Century. (...) I know and feel, with the same strenght, that Gisela João is the great fado singer of the 21st Century." And who are we to deny it?
