Tabi no Chikara

Hi everyone.

We were so happy to receive so many messages after the airing saying how my special was touching and moving. We also received a lot of questions especially about the last song that I sang.

The song is No Rancho Fundo, composed by Ary Barooso and the lyrics were by Lamartine Babo. It was composed in 1931, and was a repertoire of Joao Gilberto.

We took this photo while we were shooting the program.

She is a Fado singer who happened to be a relative of Amalia Rodrigues. She had a beautiful voice too.

I met this lady when I was heading to a Fado Museum. She said she comes out and sit on a bench in front of her house and basks in the sun everyday.
