With her album "Lagrimas" Dulce Pontes reveals fado once again in the moment when everyone forgot about it and the new generation of musicians are not taking interest for it. This album remained as one of the most selling albums of all time in Portugal. The newly acquired popularity of fado cannot be imagined without the contribution of the great Portuguese diva Dulce Pontes. She connects the traditional fado with the contemporary styles and searches for new forms. Her music is inspired not only by Iberian musical tradition but also Arabic, African and Brazilian sound.
The collaboration with the legendary composer Ennio Morricone is rounded up on the album” Focus” - a joint album signed by both authors. The album has become a major success as well as the next double CD ''A brisa do coração'' recorded live in the Colosseum in Porto. Dulce releases the new and current album in 2017 “Peregrinacao”, the song “Meu Amor sem Aranjuez” has stood up from it.
Dulce Pontes is the winner of many international awards, such as “Amigo” award for the best performer of Latino music and the international award “Tenco”, following the prestigious award “Maria Carta” and “Microfono de oro''.
