Portuguese Sounds of Canada

A famous singer, Tony Gouveia is considered something of an ambassador for fado, a Portuguese music and dance genre. Well known in the North American Portuguese community for more than  20 years of performance with the famed non-fado group Tabu, he is truly the voice of fado with his charming, touching vocals and moving emotional performances.

Tony has received a whole slew of prestigious awards, among them the Merit Award for Music, Portugal Week 2007, presented by the Alliance of Portuguese Clubs and Associations of Ontario.

Fans remember his remarkable solo performances at numerous festivals, including Summerfolk and Mill Race Folk Festivals, LuminaTO Festival, and Montreal Highlights, to name just a few, as well as at many Toronto clubs with Nuno Cristo’s Anima Fado series.
