Full description
Meet a collective of professional Fado artists who share a passion for the pure and classic Fado and enjoy an intimate concert that combines all the aesthetics and authenticity of this music genre. There are two types of Fado shows: Every day at 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm, you will hear the pure Fado show dedicated to the most authentic tradition of classic Fado. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 9:00 pm, you will hear tributes to historic Fado artists and concerts dedicated to specific thematics such as love, "saudade", dark Fado, white Fado, etc... If you want, you can arrive at the venue early 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. During the concerts, you'll 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. This aproach is defined by improvisatio and it's a musical invitation to contemplate the nature of existence and to express joy and sadness in a celebration of life. During the concerts you will hear around 12 Fados and 2 instrumentals songs of portuguese guitar, an exquisite instrument that you must listen if you're coming to Portugal. Before the concert starts, you will be offered a glass of Port.

    Highly recommend this wonderful concert in a most intimate venue (30 people at most). Go 30 minutes in advance to meet the singers and musicians and hear the history of Fado. I’m sure the singers and musicians at the more “touristy” venues that include dinner are very talented, but this experience was so wonderful.

    It was amazing! Ricardo, the classic guitar player gave us a lot of information about the music history. the entire band was fantastic, I liked very much how they were enthusiastic and passionate about their job and the music. The singer was a nice lady who could create the mood of the song's feeling and she was a brilliant artist. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who would like to attend a traditional fado night, even if you are not so much into music.

    I went to three Fado shows during my time- all of which offered something different. This was my favorite overall experience AND the singing was almost my favorite. The location was super cool and unique, the port wine was tasty and I thought it was amazing that the host of the evening (who is also a Fado artist)- would step in and translate into 4 languages- so everyone could be educated and entertained. The singer, who was a relatively new addition, is a fantastic one and really set the level for me on which I compared all the other singers and experiences. The place was a bit chilly, but I was so into the music it didn't matter!
