Step by Step

Get your ticket for a live fado show and enjoy the most famous international expression of Portuguese music. Through the sounds of a Portuguese guitar and a classical guitar, as dictated by the fado tradition, you will have the opportunity to get closer to this music, a symbol of Portuguese culture and identity. You will also hear the voices, male and female, of an experienced duet whose talent shines through.

Some of the main themes of Fado are melancholy, frustration or the day-to-day life in poor neighbourhoods. It is believed to have its origins in the songs of the people of the sea, inspired by loneliness, nostalgia and the rocking of the boat on the water. It is a genre strongly rooted in the Portuguese mentality and customs, to the point of being considered an icon of the country's art .

The show will take place in a restored theatre where Lisbon now holds space for culture, tradition and music. Here you can enjoy the exceptional voices and performances of some of the city' s best performers for about an hour. It is a recommended visit both for lovers of Portuguese music and for those who want to delve deeper into the culture and tradition of one of Europe's oldest countries.

    They presented a variety of songs to give an overview of fado. Overall I enjoyed it very much, it was a light introduction to fado without making it too touristy.
