BIOGRAPHY


Pedro de Castro is one of the most talented guitarists of his time.

Pedro de Castro began playing piano at the age of 8, and at the age of 14, by the hand of the master José Luís Nobre Costa, one of the great masters of Portuguese Guitar and the portuguese guitar player who most fado albuns recorded in the history of Fado.

Initially he played in “Fado Houses” in Lisbon and shortly afterwards began to accompany fado singers in concert, next to his master, like João Braga, Frei Hermano da Câmara, Carlos Zel and some other respected Fado singers.

During the 20 years of his career, Pedro de Castro accompanied several Fado singers and as music producer he was responsible for several record projects, in the cinema and in advertising. Pedro de Castro is also the owner of one of the most emblematic Fado Houses in the city of Lisbon, the “Mesa de Frades”, also known as a mystical retreat of national and foreign artists. Pedro have helped launch young talents such as Carminho, Ricardo Ribeiro and recently Teresinha Landeiro.

Pedro also participated in numerous shows, among which we can highlight the artists Fáfá de Belém, Martinho da Vila, Alcione, Plácido Domingo, which had the special participation of Maestro Gerry de Mol and the Belgian orchestra. In the musical theater “In Love” of José da Ponte and in the musical participation in the company of contemporary Ballet Quorum ballet in the show “Correr o  Fado”.

Inspired, versatile, unique and with strong traditional roots, Pedro de Castro has as much of relaxation as of dedication to every note he gives.
Expressive and with a very own interpretative style, he leaves his mark on those who hear his music not only for the musical quality but for the genuineness of his interpretation.
