We bring to life, in our small auditorium, multimedia daily shows that allow those who visit us, not only to listen, but also to get to know Fado’s history and essence.

 

Over the course of an hour, some emblematic Fado themes are played live, along with segments of a short documentary, which revisits, through testimonies of figures inextricably associated with this musical genre, some of the key moments in history of Fado, considered, in 2011, Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

 

The live songs interpretation is assured by credited musicians of the North, with verified curriculum in the instrumental and vocal areas of Fado, who give Fado in the exact measure of what they receive: everything.
