The Sounds Of Fado With Authentic Pictures

Fado – no other portrayal of the Portugese soul captures it as vividly as these wistful songs of heartbreak, unrequited love, and parting. Before this Portuguese elegy became socially acceptable at the end of the 19th century, it could only be heard in Lisbon’s dark portside bars. Authentic photographs by Luís Pavão capture the mood of the sensual songs and melodies presented here.

A musical selection from classic to modern Fado. Fado from Lisbon, Coimbra including instrumentals and a CD with the Queen of Fado, Amália Rodriguez.
