    Soon to leave the new CD of the fado singer Marco Rodrigues

    The new record will consist of a series of unpublished and improbable collaborations with authors such as Carlão, Diogo Piçarra, Luísa Sobral, Capicua, Agir, Pedro da Silva Martins, Tiago Pais Dias and Marisa Liz (Amor Electro), Boss AC or ÁTOA, band that signs “Fado do Cobarde”.
