Hello everyone,

I'm a new member here in this website. One of the reasons is that here I'm seeking help in finding the name of the Portuguese song that can be heard in the background of this video:

Since my Portuguese language skills are limited to basic expressions I had difficulty in finding this song. If anyone knows the name of this terrific song, I'd be thankful.

Well, I'm a native Portuguese speaker, but I couldn't understand what the singer is saying. I'd say she comes from Portugal and this is an old recording, incomplete because there seems to be some small missing pieces in the first line.

Sorry I can't help you more.

Is it possible to discern some of the words that the singer is singing? Maybe in that way it would be possible to find the actual name of the song?
Either way, I appreciate your help.

Sounds like a Brazilian modinha to me but the singer is definetively Portuguese.

There's a little fragment which is the only key I could find:
Adeus, adeus, minha adorada Eulina,
Ordena a sina cumprir mandos teus!
Se a dor matar-me na fatal masmorra,
Antes que eu morra te direi – adeus!

That's what you hear from 1:40

In the beginning, I can listen to something like
Adeus, oh, lindo
Que de ti (...)

She does say these lines, but in a different way.
Se a dor matar-me em fatal masmorra
Antes que eu morra vou dizer-te adeus

I couldn't recognize what she says before these two lines. It seems to be a part of a book by Lindolfo Rocha (who is Brazilian) - but this singer of course comes from elsewhere (I'd say Portugal because of her accent) - but since it comes from a book I'm not sure this song has a name or lyrics of its own...

I appreciate the analysis. I also found that the lyrics are related with Lindolfo Rocha but still couldn't find the exact name for the song. That's quite a puzzle, I wonder where did the authors of the video found this song since the song is so difficult to find.
Once again, Gleb Voscanian and Alma Barroca, thank you for your help Regular smile
