You will feel Fado

Other than a musical genre, Fado can also be a phenomenon which occurs when there’s a perfect harmony between the artists and the audience. It’s a unique emotion and when it occurs, it’s often said “there was Fado” or that “Fado happened”.

An exclusive concert of Traditional Fado

The Ideal Clube de Fado is a collective of professional artists who share a passion for Traditional Fado. We are different because we don’t play the mainstream setlists or any other styles like Marchas or Folk Music. We are independent because our mission is to share real Fado. We are unique because there is no other project in Porto solely dedicated to Traditional Fado. This style, considered the art of Fado, combines all the aesthetics and authenticity of this music genre.

Talk with the artists

Between 5:30 pm and 5:50 pm the musicians will be availabe for a conversation around Fado. We want you to be able to distinguish the different styles currently played in concerts, to understand the specificity of Traditional Fado and how the artists approach it.

  • “The performance was wonderful. First, the information about fado’s history and the types of fado were clear and interesting. Then, the music! We were mesmerized by all three musicians and their individual and combined performance was outstanding. The setting was intimate and we even had a chance to talk with them after. I also thought the song set was put together thoughtfully with a powerfully emotional song at the end. This performance was a highlight of our three days in Porto. Thank you!”

  • “Three dear friends and I found ourselves enchanted from the get-go, when the guitarist introduced himself and the Portuguese guitarist and explained the styles of fado. The vocalist truly embraced the audience, wove info on fado into the fabric of her moving renditions of traditional fado. An A+ experience.”

  • “What a beautiful hour of music and singing! This was a great introduction to Fado music and made us want to listen to more! The guitarists were very skilled and the singing was heartfelt and emotional. All the artists were friendly and welcoming during this intimate performance and the free drink was a nice gesture. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves music!”
