Full description

Four artists, male and female Fado singers and top musicians, open their hearts and invite you to get intimate with Fado in all its unique and different expressions. Immerse into the experience, with hand-picked personal testimonials in various languages, and see Fado up close and personal.

Experience first, traditional Fado, a highly marketed and intense style from Lisbon, where it all began. Then, enjoy the stylings of the unique Portuguese Guitar while tasting a Tawny Port. Listen and witness the nuances of the Lisbon and Coimbra playing techniques.

Discover the Coimbra Fado genre, completely unique to the Portuguese people and sung live by a male singer, a former student at the Coimbra University, as tradition demands. Then, in the fourth segment, discover Amalia Rodrigues, the queen of the Portuguese Fado. Watch how she transformed traditional Fado and brought unprecedented recognition.

Finally understand how Fado survives and thrives through the years. Through different poetics, fusions with other musical genres, and honoring tradition, Fado is preserved, as you will see by the end of the show.

Arrive early and informally get together with musicians and Fado singers as they arrive at the venue.

    This was such a fun and informative event! The setting was lovely, the performances were amazing, and the historical info really helped in appreciating this art form. You even get a glass of sherry to help you have a complete experience. The staff was also so eager to provide a great experience. I highly recommend this event!

    Performance, venue, and flow was just spectacular. Very intimate setting and all the performers are very gracious and talented. The film that they included with the performances was so interesting and gave so many facts on the history of Fado. The location of the venue was close to a lot restaurants.

    Incredible fado experience - the performers were extremely talented, and it’s a fantastic way to hear several different types of fado in just one hour. The video clips are very helpful in understanding what you’re hearing and why it’s meaningful. I was so impressed and felt like I got so much more out of it than if I had just gone to a traditional fado concert/dinner with no explanations or context. Enjoyed speaking with the performers afterward, and all were very kind and very appreciative. I HIGHLY recommend!!! Thank you so much to the team for all your hard work and for sharing your gifts with us.
