This show was great from the start till the end. Music was very touching, but beside it the welcoming and warm attitude of performers made it great as well. I took my mum who was visiting me there, and I couldn't make a better decision.

Very good experience. We had a nice time. The guitar music is magnificent and the singer sings wonderfully well.

Great show. Excellent playing and singing. The music is very moving.The story of Fado was also interesting.

An unexpected beautiful cozy atmospheric and emotional evening, highly recommended and valuable
