    What to Expect
    Visit: Estatua de Vimara Peres, Calcada de Vandoma, Porto 4050-620 Portugal

    According to Amália Rodrigues, the great fado singer, "The point is to feel Fado. Because Fado is not sung, it happens. It can not be explained, only felt."

    Have a meeting with portuguese culture,  contacting with  very unique  cultural values - fado, portuguese tradicional stringed instruments, wine - deeply related with the history of Portugal.

    The one hour-long concert starts with the emotional voice of our leading female singer, followed by the rich sounds of the  portuguese guitar and the viola de fado (guitar). On the pause, it will be served a reserve port wine from a portuguese family-owned company of Douro Valley. On the second half, the male voice of the guitar player joins the leading singer on some songs.

    An hour-long concert that drive us through the intense emotions of Fado.

    Fado is typically performed in an old district of Lisbon as a dinner show, however it can be a challenge for tourists to know which places will have a good performance and not be expensive or crowded. I experienced some street fado in Lisbon and...More
