Full description
Meet a collective of professional Fado artists who share a passion for traditional Fado and enjoy an intimate concert that combines all the aesthetics and authenticity of this music genre. Arrive at the venue early, at 5:00 PM, for the opportunity to chat with the musicians. Listen as they tell you about the different types of Fado and learn what makes this genre so special. Before the concert starts, you will be offered a glass of Port. During the concert, listen to a traditional music style that is far removed from the commercial Fado that is often found in tourist hotspots. This is the only venue in Porto which is fully dedicated to authentic and artistic Fado. You will hear 9-10 Fados and 2 instrumentals songs. Defined by improvisation, Fado is a musical invitation to contemplate the nature of existence and to express joy and sadness in a celebration of life.

    Amazing night. Meeting one of the musician and getting explanations about fado was highly interesting and I think it truly helped appreciating the concert after that. Now, when it comes to the concert itself, I cannot express how touched I was by this music, by the undeniable talent of the two musicians and the passion of the singer. My mum and I bought their CD afterwards, and I'll be back with my boyfriend next week. A MUST ! So far, the best concert I've heard in Portugal (including Lisbon). It took me some effort not to cry as it got me very emotional. In one word : PERFECT !

    What a fantastic concert; you really get to witness a unique and intimate fado experience. As others have written, don't forget to show up a little earlier for a demonstration and comprehensive insight into the various styles of fado. Really learned a lot that I did not know. The concert itself was beautiful and the musicians are brilliant; the lead singer also shares some backstory and context in between songs. Would recommend!

    Brilliant experience - we had an amazing time with a proper taste of original Fado music. Ricardo and Mr. Quaresma have put some amazing skills on classic guitar and Portuguese guitar - making Carla's lyrics a pleasure to experience and live. All this exclusive experience (only for us and another family - because of COVID) while enjoying a glass of port wine. Amazing At the end, Ricardo kindly stayed over to take the time to dive deep into the elements and beauty of the Fado music, while also helping us to understand what the life is like in Porto. These guys are definitely worth visiting. Don't be put off by the low numbers of reviews - shortly there will be thousands of them - (its' just a new account xP) check these guys - it will be probably the best hour spent on your whole trip in this amazing city.
