Fado isn’t just music, it’s a feeling. The Portuguese call it Saudade, an untranslatable word that encapsulates a melancholic longing, interwoven into Portuguese culture that pours out of Fado singers and musicians. It’s emotional, it’s powerful, it will bring tears to your eyes as you watch Fado performers in a darkened tavern in the depths of Lisbon’s backstreets.
And what would be a performance like this without a traditional Portuguese meal to accompany (food is as important as Saudade in these parts, after all).
This is music to open you up and speak to your soul. It’s like nothing else you’ll experience. Portugal wouldn’t be the same without Fado. Now’s the chance to experience it for yourself.
