Ana Moura 

When: Fri., March 29, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $20-42

For nearly three centuries, fado has served as a syndicate of gorgeous sadness, with songs of loss and despair offered above intertwining instrumental lines of the pear-shaped, brightly pitched Portuguese guitar. But the form's acceptance and widespread popularity has taken its time, a lesson underlined by the rise of fadista Ana Moura. A personal performer who depends upon a parlor-sized intimacy even when sharing a stage with The Rolling Stones, Moura offers these mournful tunes in great cresting flutters, her back-room tone trembling just long enough for it to take off. She rose through fado's late-night club ranks to be one of the form's current and most captivating stars. —Grayson Currin
