FADO

GRAÇA VIEWPOINT | ALFAMA (OLD DISTRICT) | RESTAURANT (DINNER + FADO LIVE PERFORMANCE)

 

Fado is more than just a musical style, it is a particular way of feeling and the sung expression of the Portuguese soul. The origin is still somewhat uncertain, along with the traditional music numerous influences from Brazil, Africa and even the Middle East have joined it. But it was in Lisbon in the eighteenth century that this mixture of sounds and melancholic mourning came together and created what is now recognized as Fado. Fado is in essence a genre that has a nostalgic register, tending to talk about issues such as Love (often lost or unrequited), the bohemian life, moments linked to daily life and to the most disadvantaged classes.

Currently Fado is not as 'black' as it was, now has other colors that new generations of fado singers added to the old style, as is the case with Mariza, Ana Moura or Carminho. In addition, today Fado is also part of the world as evidenced by their status as an Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. On this tour you will watch a fado show in a traditional restaurant while indulging in the tasty traditional Portuguese cuisine. Sit back, enjoy the ride and feel like a true 'Lisboeta'!
