Porto: Fado Na Baixa Live Performance with Port Wine

1. Porto: Fado Na Baixa Live Performance with Port Wine

Four artists, male and female Fado singers and top musicians, open their hearts and invite you to get intimate with Fado in all its unique and different expressions. Immerse into the experience, with hand-picked personal testimonials in various languages, and see Fado up close and personal. Experience first, traditional Fado, a highly marketed and intense style from Lisbon, where it all began. Then, enjoy the stylings of the unique Portuguese Guitar while tasting a Tawny Port. Listen and witness the nuances of the Lisbon and Coimbra playing techniques. Discover the Coimbra Fado genre, completely unique to the Portuguese people and sung live by a male singer, a former student at the Coimbra University, as tradition demands. Then, in the fourth segment, discover Amalia Rodrigues, the queen of the Portuguese Fado. Watch how she transformed traditional Fado and brought unprecedented recognition. Finally understand how Fado survives and thrives through the years. Through different poetics, fusions with other musical genres, and honoring tradition, Fado is preserved, as you will see by the end of the show. Arrive early and informally get together with musicians and Fado singers as they arrive at the venue.

We arrived late but were accepted and welcomed with a glass of port and the amazing vibes of fado. Very impressive, touching, warm... the two singers are in absolute connection with the public and manage to wonderfully transmit their attachment to this unique universe of their song. To do even with children.

This Fado experience is for people that want to learn more about the music and the history of Fado. Songs are interspersed with film, we enjoyed the performances and also benefitted from more knowledge.

Very enjoyable activity. The singers and musicians were brilliant and there was also a video explaining the origins and other information about fado. I strongly recommend it.

Very pleasant moment spent discovering the history of fado while drinking a small glass of port. We highly recommend!

The show and story behind were excellent. The musicians and vocalists were amazing and the room was filled.
