Cristina Nóbrega, Palavras Do Meu Fado, iPlay

She has an expressive husky voice I dig and the music is pleasingly traditional in its simple accompaniment and mix of songs, from almost-romps like Madrugada De Alfama and Zanguei-Me Com O Meu Amor, to pieces with a sense of irony (even in Portuguese) like Disse-Te Adeus E Morri or Barco Negro to exceedingly sad tunes like Meu Amor, Meu Amor (Meu Limão De Amargura) and Com Que Voz.

The video shows she's accomplished even when warming up.
