Full description
Experience fado, a form of Portuguese singing that is now part of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. In a small auditorium, the performance takes you on a roaring history of fado, a style originating from the 1820's, bringing you up to the fusion versions popular today with new audiences.   Enjoy a unique presentation of Coimbra and Lisbon's fado with impeccable technical and artistic quality. The show begins with traditional fado, filled with hoarse voices invoking a feeling of nostalgia. It then explores the mysteries and evolution of the Portuguese guitar, the faithful companion of all fado singers.   The story then passes through Coimbra, the eternal city of students, which, swarming with passion and culture, witnesses the birth of its very own song. The fourth segment of the show is dedicated to Amália Rodrigues, who gives fado an unmistakable character and unprecedented recognition across borders.

    A remarkably staged performance, in it both the story of Fado, and the opportunity to hear female, male performance and just a guitar. The hall is very cozy, all the staff and musicians are friendly and welcoming. The ticket price includes a glass of port and handmade chocolate. This is not the first time we have watched a fado performance and I can say that this is one of the best and is aimed at tourists who would like to get acquainted with this culture. Recommended !!!!!

    It wasn’t the first time me and my so attended a fado night. But this fado experience was different. You learn about the history of fado and the difference between the fado from Lisbon and the fado from Coimbra. This fado performance in the beautiful city of Porto is a delight and enrichment. Amazing performance of the musicians and the fadistas. A wonderful show.
