Porto: Fado Show with Port Wine

1. Porto: Fado Show with Port Wine

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.

What people are saying about Vila Nova de Gaia

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.

The Fado was a memorable experience. One of the my favorite parts of visiting Porto. The singer and musicians were so wonderful. I felt a connection to the music. It was an intimate experience. Highly recommend. I like that the singer and host explained what a fado is and the themes of the songs.

An intimate but impactful performance in a stunning but simple venue. The musicians were all individually talented and were magical together. Would definitely recommend. The glass of port was also good!

We loved this. Lots of atmosphere, intimate and fun. It was just long enough to enjoy and get the idea.

Lovely evening. Intimate surroundings with wonderful musicians and an amazing singer.
