Fado - private performance

    Did you know that Fado is considered a world heritage by Unesco?

Fado is the most traditional kind of Portuguese music. Having undefined origins, it has been used to express everyone feelings, especially nostalgic ones. The name Fado comes from the Latin “Fatum”, meaning destiny. People would sing Fado to sing about their lives, sorrow, an unwanted love or the “Saudade*” for someone who’s gone.
