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 be served during the interlude to round out your evening.

I enjoyed the show a lot! Fado was a woman singing with one musician on a Portuguese guitar and another on a classic guitar. Had a short intermission to pass out port wine - was quite sweet. I don't drink wine but liked the taste of the sip I took. Location is fantastic, right outside the church and the Dom Luis I bridge, which is super convenient and great for seeing the sunset right after the show. Booking online was slightly cheaper than getting a ticket at the door.

Lovely cultural experience while in Porto! Sold out show that was very organized, punctual and accommodating. The singers and the band were phenomenal. To top it off, there was an (optional) Port wine tasting to fit the mood!

What a wonderful experience! Highly recommend this beautiful fado! The sounds of the instruments and the amazing voice of the singer nearly made us cry. Thank you ☺️

Definitely an experience to savour when in Porto. Very professional and enjoyable show.

Fabulous. Well organized and literally music to my ears. Port wine was a nice bonus.
