Full description

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 be served during the interlude to round out your evening.

I enjoyed the show a lot! Fado was a woman singing with one musician on a Portuguese guitar and another on a classic guitar. Had a short intermission to pass out port wine - was quite sweet. I don't drink wine but liked the taste of the sip I took. Location is fantastic, right outside the church and the Dom Luis I bridge, which is super convenient and great for seeing the sunset right after the show. Booking online was slightly cheaper than getting a ticket at the door.

Although it’s not that easy to get to Casa da Guitarra if you’re down by the Ribeira, it’s definitely worth it. The place is so authentic, has such a special ambiance, and the musicians deliver such a wonderful interpretation, that you really feel that you’ve had a true Porto experience.

Traditional show with a glass of wine served during the break. The place is near the Luis I bridge, easily accessible as far as I am concerned, and it is suggestive. I liked it a lot, the artists were great and the singer had a special voice. The only drawback that does not affect the experience, I would have liked an essential introductory comment on the content of each song before starting it. In conclusion, I highly recommend this activity ☺️
