Full description
Meet a collective of professional Fado artists who share a passion for the pure and classic Fado and enjoy an intimate concert that combines all the aesthetics and authenticity of this music genre. There are two types of Fado shows: Every day at 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm, you will hear the pure Fado show dedicated to the most authentic tradition of classic Fado. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 9:00 pm, you will hear tributes to historic Fado artists and concerts dedicated to specific thematics such as love, "saudade", dark Fado, white Fado, etc... If you want, you can arrive at the venue early for the opportunity to chat with the musicians. Listen as they tell you about the different types of Fado and learn what makes this genre so special. During the concerts, you'll listen to a traditional music style that is far removed from the commercial Fado that is often found in tourist hotspots. This is the only venue in Porto which is fully dedicated to authentic and artistic Fado. This aproach is defined by improvisatio and it's a musical invitation to contemplate the nature of existence and to express joy and sadness in a celebration of life. During the concerts you will hear around 12 Fados and 2 instrumentals songs of portuguese guitar, an exquisite instrument that you must listen if you're coming to Portugal. Before the concert starts, you will be offered a glass of Port.

    The Fado show was very good and presented in a small intimate venue. You are greeted with a complimentary glass of Port. Clear explanation was given about the songs and tunes being played. The guitar ( both classical and Portuguese) was excellent and the singing was emotional with examples of both intense and lighter examples. All in all a very enjoyable hour. The only slight negative is that the venue is not easy to find in a street behind retail premises and not well signed.

    First-time seeing Fado and it was a wonderful experience. The artists gave a great introduction on what Fado is and described the importance of what they do in performing 'pure' Fado. The guitar music was amazing, you could just hear every note in the decorative melody. It was beautiful and worth experiencing!

    I have never been to a Fado show but for my first Fado show I really enjoyed it. They did a lot of singing along with playing the guitars, which I appreciated. Very little talking, just a brief explanation of what they're singing. I loved it! They didn't really go into the history of fado, which makes sense because you're at a fado show! Not at a museum! Beautiful. There was this one man, bald, wearing glasses, that you can tell, he is playing with all of his heart, and truly makes you feel the music, even more! Wish it was more comfy chairs. They offer you a small cup of wine or a bottle of water. If you would like another one, they charge you 1 euro. Nonetheless, a beautiful moment to experience Fado music and Portugese culture.
