Claudia Aurora is a fadista and songwriter from Oporto, Portugal. It was 2003 when she swapped her beloved Porto for Bristol. Little did she know that what she began singing in the kitchen as an antidote to homesickness would take her to some of the biggest stages in the world. Claudia has since made London her base, gone on to play shows in countries as far flung as Poland and South Korea, completed the UK’s biggest tour ever undertaken by a fado singer, and been awarded a residency at Green Note, Time Out’s London Venue of the Year 2015.
“People don’t understand what I’m singing,” says Claudia, “so I try to make them feel what I want them to feel. Onstage, my heart is in my mouth, and I think maybe people will see it beating.”
Claudia will be joined on stage by Javier Moreno (Spanish Guitar) Andres Garcia (Brazilian Guitar) and Kate Shortt (Cello)
