The show “Mine. Unique. Fado.” aims to let the audience get really intimate with Fado.

Emblematic Fado themes are played live, along with segments of a short documentary, translated in English and French, which revisits, through testimonies of figures tightly associated with this musical genre, some of the key moments in the history of Fado, designated, in 2011, Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

The experience begins with Traditional Fado, the Fado of hoarse voices and careless language, diminished by the country’s aristocracy at the time. Then it explores the mysteries and evolution of the Portuguese Guitar, the faithful companion of all Fado singers. It also passes by Coimbra, the eternal city of students, which, swarming with passion and culture, witnesses the birth of its very own song, that, by the end of the 19th century, would be called Fado de Coimbra. The fourth segment of the show is dedicated to Amália Rodrigues, who brings new poets and gives Fado an unmistakable character and an unprecedented recognition across borders. We finally arrive to the present day and to the fusion of Fado with new contexts, people, musical styles and audiences.

The show takes advantage of the simultaneous translation technology installed in the Fado na Baixa auditorium, which allows visitors to listen to multimedia content in Portuguese, English or French. Other languages will follow soon.

Great intro to Fado. We didn't know much about this music, so this was a great way to start. Friendly staff, great music, educational video.
