Event description
This is Sara Correia's UK debut: her intense, smoky and passionate voice captures love and power, sadness and joy.

About this Event

Her debut album, Sara Correia —released in 2018 —sets her voice in a mainly acoustic instrumental setting featuring musicians Ângelo Ferreira – "undoubtedly one of this generation's Portuguese guitar geniuses" – Marino de Freitas on bass guitar, and Vicky Marques on percussion. The album earned her two nominations for the PLAY-Portuguese Music Awards, in the categories of Best Fado Album and Best New Artist. The international edition of her debut album was released by Wrasse Records in 2019.

She grew up in a family of fadistas, immersed in fado, and was just 13 years old when she won the Grande Noite do Fado (a major festival and singing competition). Her husky high-contralto voice still projects the intensity of the roots music she grew up listening to.

In support is Babesa Cubana. From the 1940s onwards many Greek songs have been coloured and driven by the rhythms and sounds of Brazil, Cuba and Argentina. Fronted by Latin jazz singer Andria Antoniou, musicians from Greece and South America add a Latin tinge to the contemporary Greek songbook.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Part of La Linea - The London Latin Music Festival
