Anyone who has seen her in concert recognizes her immense charisma. Celina da Piedade has led her accordion and her voice to the most different contexts, somewhere between the traditional forms and colors, and traveling by memories of Portuguese roots music a feel more modern and universal. Draws a soulful music full of personality, that in stage wins with her formidable presence.
