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.

This is a must for anyone that wants to experience authentic traditional music. The crowd was mixed between foreigners and Portuguese. The first night was so amazing we had to book for the next night! Each night had two different singers with very different styles. The musicians were excellent, the singing touched our souls and the venue had excellent acoustics. We will be back. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts with us.

Absolutely beautiful experience. Guitar players are top notch and singer was amazing and engaged us singing along. What a wonderful way to experience Fado. Obrigada!

Fabulously talented musicians! Sadly turns out I don’t care for Port but that didn’t detract from the experience at all. Very much worth it for the music!

I enjoyed this very much. For my first live Fado experience I’d rate it an A+. And, the wine was pretty tasty as well. Thank you!

The best Fado in town. I am musician so I can tell that the experience was exceptional!
