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.

    We heard from 2 singers with a good mix of fado styles. The videos broke up the hour and helped give structure to the night. The port was tasty and introduced me to a lesser known port house. One of the accompanist was tuning during the videos which made it a bit hard to hear. It would help if the host reminded the group to be silent, as the group behind me kept talking and playing with a fidget toy.

    Perfect place to discover the history of Fado and its evolution. Intimate place and talented artists who happily share their passion while involving the public. They are all quadrilingual (Portuguese, Spanish, English, French...). A very good glass of port was served to us at the start of the show. Far from the tourist traps of Porto, I recommend!

    We arrived late but were accepted and welcomed with a glass of port and the amazing vibes of fado. Very impressive, touching, warm... the two singers are in absolute connection with the public and manage to wonderfully transmit their attachment to this unique universe of their song. To do even with children.
