Meanwhile enjoying every minute and day here in Lisbon. Trip report to follow..many thans to all who have contributed in giving me tips and advice before my trip. One word of advice for those planning to have a trip to Portugal...have an advance lower body workout a few monthsin advance and you will be ready to rtackle the winding cobbled uphills:):):)

I would be surprised if you couldn't find lots of Amalia CDs all over the place.

The first place I would go is to Rua do Carmo between the Baixa and Chiado. There is often a cart there parked in the middle of the street playing fado, which sells Amalia CDs.

Just near there, there is a FNAC which should have them in stock.

The shop at the Fado Museum near the riverfront also sells CDs, and a huge number of them would be by Amalia. http://www.museudofado.pt/

Also, Discoteca Amália on Rua Aurea in the Baixa, or the Companhia Nacional de Musica at Rua Nova do Almada, 60 in the Chiado - http://www.cnmusica.com/pt/default.aspx

Tattosydney is correct about the locations for acquiring CD's of Amalia Rodrigues?

Black Fado Singer??????? Not exactly PC!

Do you mean Mariza, whose has Portuguese and Moçambiquian Heritage?

Tattosydney is 100% correct on the location of the stores.

I think you're talking about Mariza, Portuguese but with Moçambiquian Heritage. FNAC in Chiado have all CD's of her...

Hi all,

I bought a Mariza album from iTunes a couple of years ago.

Called Concerto Em Lisboa. A live performance which I love. Especially when in a sad mood!
