    Fado is a Portuguese musical style. In 2011, Fado was recognized by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

  • What is Traditional Fado?

    “Traditional Fado” is the original style of Fado. We can say that it is Fado in its purest state. But, despite being called “traditional”, this is the most artistic style.

Fado in Porto

Did you know that in Porto, a city of art, history and culture, Fado is the most played style of music with over 150 shows a week?

In this context, we make a difference, not only because we have reference artists from the city, but, above all, because we are the only project exclusively dedicated to Fado in its purest state.
