Porto: 4 Artists Fado na Baixa Performance with Port Wine

1. Porto: 4 Artists Fado na Baixa 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.

I really liked this! It was a perfect introduction to Fado, and a great way to spend an hour on my first evening in Porto before heading out for dinner and to check out the town. I did some other Fado activities in Lisbon, including a full evening of Fado and dinner, but found this activity in Porto to be much more informative and just the right length. Good value for the money, and the performers were really excellent!

Very nice home. Intimate room. Good rhythm with alternating video explanations and musical sequences highlighting either the female voice, the male voice or the Portuguese guitar. The room is even invited to hum! We really liked the format.

Very good experience for a first fado show, with explanatory videos on the history of Fado, singer, guitar solo and excellent singer (the boss I think) all accompanied by a glass of port. Not boring at all: I recommend !

This is a cultural event and although I am not a big fan of these events I enjoyed it. You appreciate the talent and the effort put into this show.

Very nice show with a good singer and a good singer, accompanied by explanations on the history of fado
