Personality of the WeekTeresa Tapadas
10 May, 1977
Teresa Tapadas is not a classic case of someone who, in the cradle, already dreamed of being a fado singer. She wanted to be an air hostess, has a university degree in Business Management, sang in the church choir, and was part of the folklore group “Rancho Folclórico de Riachos”, in Ribatejo, where she still lives. But gradually, led by a "fadistice" (informal fado gathering) here another there, Fado would gain ground to chart the course of her life.
