Porto: Fado Show with Port Wine

1. Porto: Fado Show with Port Wine

According to Amália Rodrigues, the great fado singer, "The point is to feel fado. Because fado is not sung, it happens. It cannot be explained, only felt." The project "Fado by Casa da Guitarra" intends to offer to you the essence of this musical genre in an evening of enchantment and wonder. During the hour-long concert, you will come in contact with very unique Portuguese cultural elements - fado, Portuguese traditional stringed instruments, wine - all of which are deeply related with Portuguese history. The acoustic fado performance takes place in an intimate setting with a female leading singer, accompanied by a Portuguese guitar player and a guitar player (playing a viola de fado), who occasionally lends his voice to the fado songs. A traditional port wine will served during the interlude to round out your evening.

The guitar playing was wonderful, the singing powerful and moving and the setting small and intimate. And we enjoyed talking to our host after the show. I would highly recommend this show. A highlight of our trip to Porto.

This exceeded my expectations! The singer was so charismatic and charming, the event felt very intimate, we sang along, we laughed, I totally recommend!

Bought tickets last minute did not regret it a single bit. Great show worth every penny.
