Traveling with music: Fado

Dramatic Fado from the heart of Portugal

Fado has gained the position of national music in Portugal. Dating back to the 1820's, it probably has its roots in the music of the African slaves that were shipped in from Brazil. The Portuguese made their own version of the music: song  accompanied with a guitar. The genre spread and became popular via taverns, brothels and street performers. Fado became a part of the daily life, its melancholic tunes echoing throughout the alleys and kitchens of Lisbon.

The event will take place November 1st at 6 p.m. on the Stage in the Music Department situated on the second floor of the Old Main Library. Free entrance.
