Traditional Fado Show in Porto
Authentic Fado in an intimate concert with passionate artists
Our shows are for real fans and those seeking for genuine Fado in an intimate setting.
At a time when Fado is often seen as a mere tourist attraction or as a hotel industry product, with dozens of places to listen to it, we do something unique in Porto.
We are exclusively dedicated to Traditional Fado. We do not play commercial repertoire, nor other styles like March Parade Style or Folklore Music (click here to learn more about these styles).
Enjoy a late afternoon moment exclusively dedicated to the true art of Fado.
In a cozy vintage space, enjoy Traditional Fado without microphones. You will be comfortably seated around tables and near the musicians.
At 5:30 pm, the musicians will talk to you, in an informal tone, about the singularities of this style, its practice and some secrets.
You will only pay the ticket price, which includes the offer of a glass of port or sparkling wine.
Fado is not only a Portuguese musical style, which in 2011 was recognized as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
It’s also an emotion that can only be understood if lived. In a good Fado concert, when there is a perfect match between artists and audience, it is often said that “there was Fado” or “Fado happened”…
Every day at 18:00 (Saturdays, Sundays and holidays too)
Duration: 50 minutes
At 5:30 pm, Meet-and-Greet with the musicians
Duration: 20 minutes
This casual moment has as its starting point to make known the various styles currently played in Fado shows, with particular focus on Traditional Fado.
