Our next event: “The magic of Fado”
In April 2019, experience the magic of Portugal as you walk through the door of an establishment filled with history in the heart of Alfama, the oldest district of Lisbon.
During a 3-hour private dinner-concert with a prefix menu that includes starter, main course, dessert, wine and coffee, you will discover Fado, this unique singing performance classified as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO since 2011.
After welcoming you, your host will give you all the information about this special night. For approximately 3 hours you will enjoy a nice Portuguese dinner, cooked with care and high quality ingredients, as you’ll listen to the beautiful and authentic Fado singing performance of professional artists.

What is Fado ?
Fado is a performance genre incorporating music and poetry widely practiced by various communities in Lisbon. Fado songs are usually performed by a solo singer, male or female, traditionally accompanied by a wire-strung acoustic guitar and the Portuguese ”guitarra” – a pear-shaped cittern with twelve wire strings, unique to Portugal, which also has an extensive solo repertoire.
