The fourth album “Sou Luz”, translated to English as My Inner Light, has as a motto: “I close my eyes in order to see better”. This album is showcase of Dona Rosa’s extraordinary gifts in rich and sonorous instrumental settings.
With Alma Livre (Free Spirit), her third CD, Dona Rosa presents an exquisite musical jewel. She takes us on a sound journey dominated by rhythmic speech. The musicians accompanying her on the guitar, percussion and accordion, unite the wonderfully balanced and complex arrangements, the cheerfulness and the melancholy, the sweetness and the heaviness into a dynamic composite.
“What I like to do best is dream; in my dreams I can see and I never want to wake up.” Dona Rosa
These 'Street Stories' transformed Dona Rosa from a mere Fado street singer to a real stage performer.
