I do not think they have fado in Madrid, since fado is from Portugal. Having seen fado in Portugal, I do not think that it goes well with the Spanish character, since it is sad. The Spanish prefer happy performances.

I would not characterize the Spanish as preferring happy performances as Flamenco does not fit that bill either. That said, I adore Fado and am sorry to miss the festival!

Benny, although fado is certainly capable of stirring deep emotion, I wouldn't necesarily categorise it all as "sad". Take a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvDGijbmoXs (Yes, I know she's the most popular, recognisable singer to us foreigners, and not necessarily representative)

I know where you're coming from, though. It can seem very intense.
