«I am a very active person. I’ve got ants in my pants». This was how Ana Bacalhau announced her solo debut after ten years of singing with Deolinda. «When I was a kid, adults talked about my excessive energy and restlessness. I didn’t know what they were talking about but I convinced myself that it was like I really had ants in my pants. (...) And the day came when these ants asked for a stage of their own», said Ana Bacalhau about the calling to follow new directions, and sing songs from other authors as well as her own.
“Nome Próprio” is the title of her much anticipated solo album, released in 2017, that took her on an extensive tour around Portugal, full of energy and dedication. Ana Bacalhau is now preparing new songs and has recently released her new single featuring Diogo Piçarra - “O Erro Mais Bonito”.
