ARMANDO FIGUEIREDO, ONE OF THE VIOLISTS EVERYONE WANTS
Armando Figueiredo is a mature and technically very reliable violist, so much demanded by many of the best in the fado scene today.
Guitarist Luís Petisca (Portuguese guitar) is a main partner in his performances outside Timpanas’ fado house, where Armando Figueiredo is part of the cast along with guitarist Hugo Edgar.
Let’s take a step in Radio SIM, in which he accompanied some fado singers, namely: João Braga, Marta Rosa, José da Câmara, among others.
In this meeting he played with a figure standing in the fado community, Professor Joel Pina (bass guitar – was part of the Adega Machado cast) that integrated Raul Nery’s legendary string quartet together with Fontes Rocha and Júlio Gomes.
