You will listen to Portugal’s most renowned Fado songs on a private and exclusive performance. Even for those who do not understand the lyrics, the emotions conveyed by the music are palpable. Embarking on a catamaran tour on Tagus River is breathtaking for anyone who wants to explore the portuguese capital.

A symbol of identity, Fado music is widely sung in Lisbon. It is typically performed by a solo male or female singer, accompanied by an acoustic guitar and the Portuguese guitarra, a pear-shaped twelve-stringed lute. It is performed professionally and informally in grass-root associations and often transmitted over successive generations within the same families.

Fado became one of Portugal’s greatest symbols through the voice of Amália Rodrigues, who played a crucial role in internationalizing and establishing it as an art form. Fado was formerly classified as a Unesco Imaterial Heritage in 2011. Since then, notable names in this genre have emerged, such as Camané, Mariza, Gisela João, and Raquel Tavares, among others.
