Teresa Salgueiro is, without a doubt, a unique artistic figure in our country and constitutes an emblematic image of Portugal in the world.
Her career in music begins in 1986 when, at just 17 years old, she is invited to join the foundation of the Madredeus group, recording 9 albums of original music, created specifically for her voice. Between 1987 and 2007, twenty years of travel and more than five million albums sold worldwide, made us the first international representatives of music made in Portugal, after Amália Rodrigues. And Teresa Salgueiro, with her discreet and delicate presence and her extraordinary voice, was the “figurehead” of this musical ship.
Invitations from names as different as José Carreras, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Carlos Núnez, Angelo Branduardi or Zbigniew Preisner recognized Teresa as one of the great contemporary singers.
The last 13 years correspond precisely to the period that marks his independence as an interpreter and producer, since the departure of Madredeus in 2007. As of 2012, he still asserts himself as the author of the music and words he sings, gathered in the albums “O Misterio” ”And“ O Horizonte ”.
The themes of his creation, along with the great variety of Portuguese authors and other latitudes that he has been interpreting throughout this time and arranging in the light of his musical language, reflect a deep respect for the diversity and richness of different cultures around the globe and they call for an awareness of the humanization challenges of the current world.
