Amália Rodrigues is to fado what Charlie Parker is to bebop: the alpha and omega of the fado genre. She recorded her song, Barco Negro (Black Boat), in 1954, and it’s been covered by many artists ever since. But Amália’s own, earlier version was not the first. Barco Negro has an unusual history. The original version was written in 1954 by two Brazilians, Piratini (Anthony Amabile) and Caco Velho (Matheus Nunes), who titled titled it Mãe Preta (Black Mother). The song was actually banned in Portugal, which was then run by the Salazar dictatorship. But in 1954, David Mourão-Ferreira wrote.
