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 started our stay with this activity. It is a good introduction to the culture of this country. The artists seem passionate and the documentary formula that accompanies songs and music is very educational. I will recommend this address. The small glass of Porto to sip during the show is very pleasant. The sound quality of the auditorium is also very good.

    A great opportunity for beginners in fado. Very good attention from the organization and we especially loved the guitarists. Although we were the only Spaniards at the function, they did not forget us. A great success and we recommend it to all those who go to Porto and like music. GREAT JOB!!!!!!

    I really liked this! It was a perfect introduction to Fado, and a great way to spend an hour on my first evening in Porto before heading out for dinner and to check out the town. I did some other Fado activities in Lisbon, including a full evening of Fado and dinner, but found this activity in Porto to be much more informative and just the right length. Good value for the money, and the performers were really excellent!
