Fados e Canções

Accompanied by Trio de Guitarras de Fontes Rocha, fado singers (fadistas) Ada de Castro, Lourenço de Oliveira, and Saudade dos Santos perform a dozen fado and other Portuguese songs. Fado is a popular urban music form that originated in the cities of Lisbon and Coimbra. It is performed by men and women, depending on the geographic region, and its lyrics often mention the past, reminiscing, or longing. In 2011, fado was added to UNESCO’s List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Liner notes include a short biographical sketch of each performer.
