Ana Moura’s 6th album, “Moura”, released in Portugal on November 27th 2015, was directly awarded Gold status. This album will be released during the first three months of 2016 in the rest of the world. Just like “Desfado”, a number of major names in Portuguese music have found their way onto this record.
Carlos Tê, who Ana Moura sings for the first time, has contributed the music and lyrics for an entire track. The same is also true of Samuel Úria. At the time of recording "Desfado", Ana Moura acknowledged she was a huge fan of the composer. Others to whom Ana Moura lends her voice for the first time include Jorge Cruz (Diabo na Cruz), Edu Mundo and Sara Tavares, who composed the music for lyrics written by Kalaf (Buraka Som Sistema). Some of the writings of José Eduardo Agualusa are set to music composed by Angola’s Toty Sa´Med.
“Moura” was produced by Larry Klein, whom Ana Moura worked with on her previous album. Canadian-born and a 4-time Grammy winner, Larry Klein has produced seminal recordings by such musical legends as Joni Mitchell and Herbie Hancock.
