Charming Portuguese “cancao”


Portugal has had an surprisingly charming and enjoyable final, every song having pregnant ethnic influences. They decided to send Filipa Sousa with Vida Minha, a nice ballad with a subtle climax, which gives you the impression there’s something more behind the music and the lyrics.
