“O que interessa é sentir o Fado. Porque o Fado não se canta, acontece. O Fado sente-se, não se compreende, nem se explica.” ― Amália Rodrigues.
Lisboa claims Fado as its own. Actually, this is where it began spontaneously in the XIX century, in the oldest neighbours of Lisboa. We will pay tribute to its precursors and biggest symbols, by visiting their most emblematic spots. Amália Rodrigues will definitely not be missed, since she was the biggest symbol of portuguese Fado and one of the most relevant icons of the portuguese culture.
Still in Lisbon, it will be our pleasure to take you to one of the most famous Fado houses, where you can experience the magic of an intimate concert with plenty of feelings.
Celebrate the best of Fado in Portugal through KonzepTours. In this Tour, you will get to know better this unique musical style that reflects the portuguese soul and culture. Listening to Fado is knowing Portugal!
Want to discover the meaning of the word saudade?
Fado is a musical style of its own in all the world and offers you complex and varied stimuli. It can be melancholic and outgoing as well. It appeals to an interior silence and moves you deep inside. Fado is, above all, feeling.
In this Tour, more than getting to know Fado, you will be truly involved in it. In this story, Coimbra and Lisboa are locations you will not want to miss.
In Coimbra, Fado is mainly present in the voices of the students. This close relationship between the music and the University will take you on a rythmic journey through the inviting streets of Coimbra. We will visit the most remarkable spots in the city which, besides having a connection to culture and music, also has a very distinctive role in the history of Portugal. Narratives and past memories from Kings and Queens contrast with the youth and progress of a city that never ceases to surprise its visitors.
There is a Fado verse which is “Coimbra is more enchanting when it is time to depart”. And it is indeed when you come back from Coimbra that you realise all the richness you just left behind. But this is not the end, for your Tour is only halfway.
