Fado in Porto


Listen to the only concert 100% dedicated to pure Fado, without the usual commercial programs that mix Fado with Songs, “Marchas” and Folklore music.

Among our artists we cultivate a passion for the origins of this song, which was included in UNESCO’s lists of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2011

Each concert is a live act of creation, a unique experience that is renewed every day and drinks from the inexhaustible source of this strange way of life that is to be Portuguese.
