Raquel Tavares

Portuguese fado singer Raquel Tavares is one of the biggest names in the contemporary fado scene. Traditional fado is all about mournfulness, gloom and melancholy, but Raquel does things a little differently: she often takes a more positive, optimistic approach to the genre. Catch her promoting her latest album, 2016's eponymous 'Raquel', at North Sea Jazz Club in Amsterdam on 24 February 2017.
