O Fado Operário no Alentejo
‘O Fado Operário no Alentejo’ is a rice-paper edition of poems sung by labourers while working Alentejo’s paddy fields over the past two centuries. The book forms a cultural archaeology of the region and its creators, depicting the time’s everyday life, love, sorrow, oppression and revolt. It completes the region’s cycle of rice production and asserts traditional practices in a landscape increasingly dominated by the international global rich.
