Wonderful gentle introduction to Fado
Jan 2020
I definitely enjoyed this. It's a talk and demonstration of Fado, along with some audio-visual components, by a guy who's really passionate about his culture and also plays beautifully. It's held in a small room in the clock tower of the gate into the old city of Faro (you access it through a flight of stairs inside the tourism office). I couldn't think of a better introduction to the subject.

Interesting solo recital. Beautiful playing.
Jan 2020
I was lucky to see Joao all to myself on a quiet day in Faro over New Year. A very interesting talk about the story of Fado in this beautiful church location. He is passionate about the national instrument of Portugal and played a variety of tunes wonderfully. Very informative and I have since been listening to more Fado. Recommended!

Excellent introduction to Fado
Jan 2020 • Solo
I really enjoyed this short introduction to Fado. The lecture takes place up in the bell tower of the Old City (next to tourism centre). The instructor is very enthusiastic about this part of Portuguese culture, and is very open to answer all your questions. He also plays beautifully.

Excellent story about Fado
It was a really beautiful 30min and the artist was really passionate about what he does. It comes through in how he plays the music. Must see in Faro. Let's keep Fado alive in Faro.

Experienced Fado 🙂
Nov 2019 • Solo
It was a nice cozy setting. Joao makes you feel very much welcome and quite interactively presents to you the evolution and other interesting aspects of Fado. This was my first time listening to Fado music, so the recital left me wanting for more. I expected more music than it had, I guess. But then I realized that I enjoyed the recital so much coz of all the information put together so beautifully. For the time and money, this is absolutely perfect. When you go, keep in mind - This is more than just the music, this is an experience of Fado.
