DONA ROSA Lisbon/Portugal NEW CD : „Sou Luz (My Inner light). Even today fairy tales still happen - tales sounding as if they came straight out of the Arabian Nights. This is the miraculous story of the blind singer DONA ROSA of Lisbon. Already in the 70s, she turned up in video documentaries as a street singer, accompanying herself only with a triangle in the alleys of Lisbon, where she had long been a local heroine. Then in 1999, André Heller was captivated by her and invited her to appear in the „Voice of God TV production. JARO was able to arrange for DONA ROSA to be accompanied by the choir on two of the tracks on this album. Furthermore, in accordance with a wish for documentation expressed by DONA ROSA herself, one of the songs was recorded where a large part of her life has taken place - in the street.
Dona Rosa embodies the true longing of the soul, rooted in a tradition whose most relevant and famous symbol is Fado. Her voice is the ideal instrument for the expression of this longing. And as she sings, she enables us to see and feel her world, which though outwardly blind, opens vast internal emotional vistas. The eyes of the body are unable to see. The real vision comes from the eyes of the spirit.
