About
Meet a collective of professional Fado artists who share a passion for Traditional Fado. This style, considered the art of Fado, combines all the aesthetics and authenticity of this music genre. Before the concert, at 17:30, you will have the opportunity to talk with the musicians. They will explain you the different styles that are usually played in Fado concerts with musical examples and why the traditional style is the most artistic one. Before the concert, you'll be offered a Port or sparkling wine, as you prefer. At the concert you won't hear mainstream setlists or any other styles like "Marchas de Lisboa" or Folk Music, often called as Fado for tourists or comercial Fado. It's the only concert in Porto fully dedicated to authentic and artistic Fado. Silence at the concert is required. Music will be played by a typical trio: a "Fadista" (term for Fado singer), a classical guitar player and a Portuguese guitar player. You will hear 9-10 Fados and 2 instrumentals songs.

Having listened to Fado in Coimbra, i was a anxious to share the amazing style of music with my wife. We arrived 15 min early, interesting eclectic venue. The history behind Fado was explained well. Unfortunately, when the show started, it was a little painful. The two gentlemen on guitars were accomplished musicians, but the woman singing was not pleasant to listen to. We left at the first break.

Good introduction into the history and origin of Fado from the singer Fernanda Moreira but the performance fell a bit flat for me. Very small drink too and toilets smelled bad. The upstairs 'bar' area has an interesting deco with antique toys displayed on large shelving units. Guitars were good but I heard better Fado last year in Lisbon. Something was lacking for me in the last night's performance.

Hello, Thank you very much for your extensive feedback. Every day we do our best to put on a good Fado show and provide our customers with a good experience. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy our show as much as you would expect. Regarding the toilets, that's something we'll give more attention and thank you for letting us know. About the port wine, we serve 7-8 cl which is a standard quantity. About the fado performance that's something we cannot objectively control. It's all about art, humanity, emotions and subjectivity. Anyway, we have a group of eleven top level fado artists who can deliver top performances. Eveyday is a different formation. I really hope we can deserve your preference again in a future opportunity. Best regards, Ricardo Pons

We greatly enjoyed this Fado performance - the concept of Fado was explained, and its various derivatives, followed by two 1/2 hour sets of Fado singing and instrumental music by a great male Fado singer and very accomplished musicians on the classic and Portuguese guitar.

The BEST place to learn about Fado for non-Portuguese visitors. I'm glad I found this especially since Ricardo (one of the guitarist) and the singer were so informative.
Show officially starts at 6, but you can get there 15-20 minutes earlier and speak with the performers in Portuguese, or English. Afterwards you get your free glass of port wine and the singer then tells you about the emotions and the different subject in fado. Before the start of each song, she'll tell you what it's about so you can get a feeling for what she's singing (all in Portuguese) and appreciate it. There's a instrumental-only part of a song in there too.
The performers stress that this is more traditional fado where they'll play a "happier" popular songs, but their specialty will be on original type of songs.
Overall, great introduction to fado and amazing performance. Buy your tickets online. The bar is a little unique too.

The specific characteristic of this club, with respect to other similar places in Portugal, is that (at least the day we visited it) the kind of fado that was performed was only "fado tradicional", that is, the most authentic kind of fado.
Also, if you go there 20 minutes before the beginning of the actual show, Ricardo will give you a detailed explanation of the traditional fado, which helps for a better understanding of the whole experience.
The guitar players and the singers were excellent.
If you add that the price of the show also includes a glass of Porto wine, which makes the experience even more authentic and enjoyable, it's hard to imagine how anybody could miss this experience in Porto.

It was a joy. The singer is mischievous, saucy, passionate, and the musicians are on top of their game. On top of a generous glass of port, I can't think of a better introduction. Thursday night - just go!
