Fado, Saudade & Mystery
de Rémi Boyer
Sobre o livro
LOVE OF PORTUGAL
«Having taken care to study this sentiment, which we call Saudade, which is without equal, Rémi Boyer strolls in Lisbon feeling the sound and smell of Fado in every back street, drinking in all the fadista nuances of a people and evaluating each movement of the musicians.
He takes in the permanent dialogue between voice and guitar, taking the trouble to recognise the makers of Portuguese guitars, the most researched by guitarists.
He also sees that there is Fado, a great deal of Fado, in all those who, choosing a vagabond style of Fado, dare to sing in an improvised manner, running the inevitable risk of letting others see their inner being, and who penetrates, without shame or fear, the temples of Fado, as Rémi describes them.»
