What they are saying about Mísia


Partice Leconte,
Film Director


"Mísia's hair trim, her fringe, is rather graphical. She also has gestures. Postures. Blacks and whites. Angles and curves. Fine and thick tines. This is why more than singing the Fado she actually designs the Fado."
  Gilbert & George,
Plastic Artists


"Her fados are the most emotional music we have listened without even understanding a single word. She dares to listen to her body and creates beauty from the most extreme situations. She is an authentic artist."
 


Ute Lemper,
Singer


"When Mísia sings we are transported to an universe of theatrical passion and emotional deepness."
  Bill T. Jones,
Dancer & choreographer


"Mísia is one of the most avant-garde and charismatic fado singers of our time."
 
Eduardo Prado Coelho,
Essayist


"Only those capable of hearing the voice emerging from the throats worn by flame, only those capable of following the nocturnal pace of an unusually intelligent enunciation - in recognizing the verbal textures and the consumed emotions that gather within - may come to understand that sharpest pain hardly ever derives from open wounds. Mísia relates to Fado in a way that reaches the 'mystical' - and it is almost scaring."
