March 4th is marked by the moment when Mísia begins to reveal to the world the project she has embraced in recent months – Animal Sentimental. It is a multidisciplinary project that tells, sings and highlights the trajectory of the artist who revolutionized traditional Fado.
Da vida I want the signs is the single that anticipates the arrival of a new album, which will be released by the German label Galileo in April. This record work arises from Mísia’s desire to accompany the revisiting of her memories with the ideal soundtrack to transport readers to her imagination, rich, eclectic and fascinating.
Mísia is not only one of the most precious treasures of our musical panorama, she is also one of the most adventurous and innovative Fado artists, a voice that has never forgotten tradition and has always known how to integrate the signs that life has brought her into her work. Feelings, that ineffable material that inspires poets and artists from so many other areas, are treasures that only weigh on the soul. Misia is well aware of this. This female artist, dreamy fado singer, singer-actress, storyteller of her own and others, is the first to admit that she is a sentimental animal. She now opens a new chapter in a career that spans three decades and is widely recognized internationally – Animal Sentimental.
A book that will be made up of poetic episodes and humorous and sentimental moments, of small tragedies, of a long life path that goes back to childhood memories and that, from 1991, began to be fixed in records of increasing success and artistic ambition. . But behind this book is a music curation process and that’s how the album was born.
An album, also guided by Mísia herself in partnership with Wolf-Dieter Karwatky, an award-winning producer with a 50-year career who has worked with some of the biggest names in classical music, collecting Grammys and adding successful projects stamped by Deutsche Grammophon.
In each of the pieces, Mísia gives herself without reservation, taking each song as a mirror that reflects those feelings that carry her and that she herself carries, denoting a singular interpretative intelligence, refined by a serious artistic posture that has always differentiated her. On the cover, this singular side, captured by the French painter Anne-Sophie Tschiegg, because only an artist can show the true face of another artist.
And, finally, the show on May 27 at the Museu do Oriente, in Lisbon, produced by Uguru. The opportunity for a long-awaited reunion with the public in a unique proposal to visit the fascinating creative universe of Mísia. In this show, the artist brings together, on stage, the stories and songs but also the feelings, emotions and experience of a woman who traveled the world, singing it in Portuguese and gathering unique memories, never before shared publicly. stage is the natural habitat of any sentimental animal.
