Mafalda Arnauth, born in Lisbon in October of 1974, is one of the latest revelations in fado. She started her career in 1995 when invited by Joao Braga (an important fado singer) to participate in a concert at S. Luis's Theater. What initially seemed to be a single experience, turned out to be a way of life.

Today her value is recognized, not only in Portugal but also in many foreign countries, where her presence is regularly requested.

Mafalda Arnauth, her first album released in 1999, was immediately acclaimed by specialists and won the Prize for Best Upcoming Voice by the weekly magazine Blitz, a sign that new generations are back into fado.

After a year filled with concerts and important invitations, that took her to the most important concert halls in The Netherlands, the Louisiana Centre (Denmark) and to Italy, to perform in the festival Sete-Sois, Sete-Luas, an important Mediterranean folk event, she sang at Centro Cultural de Belem, where she was warmly acclaimed by the press. 

Mafalda's second album, Esta voz que me atravessa (This voice that goes through me) was reelased in 2001 and it was produced by Amelia Muge and Jose Martins. Her album Encantamento was self-produced. she feeels it "leaves fatality, disgrace, and nostalgia behind. Hope is fed on sadness;inspiration on suffering; strength and courage on diffculties."
