What It Is
A Live Fado in Chiado performance is a must for anyone visiting the City of Lisbon, this ticket will get you access to one of the best shows in the Chiado Neighbourhood.
An alternative experience to the standard evening out and far more intense than a large theatre show. In a small and unique local venue, even the toughest critic is sure to be moved by this soulful performance.
Fado in Chiado is a show made up of a small group, just 2 talented singers and 2 equally talented guitarists, together the 3 artists will draw you into their deeply moving performance and take you on a journey into the heart and soul of Portuguese music.
This popular Portuguese style of music developed in the early 1800's and quickly found it's way into the heart of Lisbon and the homes of the city's inhabitants. In 2011 the music style was accepted into UNESCO's collection on Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Although performances are in Portuguese the emotion expelled through the lyrics passes any language barrier. Fado songs are a complex, yet still beautiful, a combination of resignation and optimism, portraying both depression and longing. It's certainly a lot to fit into one 50 minute performance.
