Full description
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.

The singer is very passionate, has a beautiful voice, and is very accessible. The two guitarists behind her are exceptional. I would give 5 stars if it were just a little longer...felt a little short. But overall, if you are looking for a fado experience, I would definitely recommend this show. The location is very easy to get to as well (if you are in the historical section of Porto).

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.

Casa Da Guitarra is a small venue tucked away from Avenue Vimara Peres with only front door inviting music lovers for their venues. The audience capacity is small and in conjunction with fairly low ceilling it creates very small and almost intimate venue. The host was very welcoming and eagerly attending to all requests. I alos should mention here a glass of porto during break in performance.
