  • Taste a delicious port wine
  • Discover the Portuguese traditional stringed instruments
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 served during the interlude to round out your evening.

Casa Da Guitarra is a small venue tucked away from Avenue Vimara Peres with only front door inviting music lovers for their venues. The audience capacity is small and in conjunction with fairly low ceilling it creates very small and almost intimate venue. The host was very welcoming and eagerly attending to all requests. I alos should mention here a glass of porto during break in performance.

We wanted to experience a Fado concert and read a publication in a blog about Casa da Guitarra, so we didn't think twice and bought our tickets. The event didn't let us down: the atmosphere, the presence, the music, and the voice. We're not fado experts but this kind of music is worth seeing live.

We arrived and were greeted by nice staff who spoke English, which was helpful since I don’t speak Portuguese. The show started a few minutes late but that wasn’t a big deal. The show room is small, just rows of chairs in front of the stage, but it is charming. They serve the Port wine halfway through the show. It had a maple-like flavor but I cant’t remember what kind of Port wine it was. The woman singer was fantastic and moved quickly from one song to the next, so they preformed quite a few songs. The male string instrument players were great two. I enjoyed the experience overall very well and I would go back.
