Raquel Tavares won the biggest song contest dedicated to fado in Portugal: “Grande Noite do Fado”.[1]

She sings regularly at “Bacalhau de Molho”, one of the most famous fado houses in Lisbon, and has made shows all around Europe, in cities like Paris, Rome or Madrid.[1]

Raquel sings what she sees, feels and smells around her, what she lives from day to day. And nothing suits her purposes better than the tangible, real-life stories written by Linhares Barbosa, the fado poet who best told the tales of the people.[1]

Her first album was released in 2006 and this was also the year when she was the winner of the Amália Rodrigues Revelation Prize.[1]

Her second album, Bairro, just came out in May 2008.[1]

She has been named one of the most representative fado singers of the new generation and no longer just a promising voice.[1]


In 2004, Raquel played a small part, as a Fado singer, in Mário Barroso's film "O Milagre Segundo Salomé" ("The Miracle According to Salomé").[2]

She entered in the Eurovision Dance Contest 2008 with João Tiago. They took the 8th place.[1]
