With her emotionally rich vocals, Teresa Salgueiro has helped to make Madredeus one of Portugal's most influential groups. Inspired by Portugal's fado tradition, an intricate vocal style that incorporates elements of opera, blues, and tango, Salgueiro has added a modern sensibility to the traditional sound. Salgueiro was praised by http://www.popmatters.com for her "ethereal voice, which combines earthly desire, cosmic awe, material longing, and transcendental hope, and which settles over you like a state of grace." Salgueiro has attracted attention with her vocalizing since childhood. As a young girl she sang Portuguese music and Brazilian bossa nova tunes in the streets and taverns of Lisbon. Moving to old Lisbon with friends, at the age of 16, she continued to sing. Soon after meeting guitarist/producer Pedro Ayres Magalhaes in 1987 she helped to form Madredeus. The group recorded their debut album, Lisbon Live, at the Iberian Theater. Accompanied by the acoustic, almost classical sounds of Magalhaes and José Peixoto on guitar, Francisco Ribeiro on cello, Gabriel Gomes on accordion, and Rodrigo Leão on keyboards, Salgueiro allowed her voice to soar with irresistible passion. In 1994, Salgueiro and Madredeus recorded the soundtrack of Wim Wenders' movie Lisbon Story (Viagem a Lisboa). Along with Magalhaes, Salgueiro played a prominent role in the film. The soundtrack was released as Ainda.
