About
Meet a collective of professional Fado artists who share a passion for Traditional Fado. This style, considered the art of Fado, combines all the aesthetics and authenticity of this music genre. Before the concert, at 17:30, you will have the opportunity to talk with the musicians. They will explain you the different styles that are usually played in Fado concerts with musical examples and why the traditional style is the most artistic one. Before the concert, you'll be offered a Port or sparkling wine, as you prefer. At the concert you won't hear mainstream setlists or any other styles like "Marchas de Lisboa" or Folk Music, often called as Fado for tourists or comercial Fado. It's the only concert in Porto fully dedicated to authentic and artistic Fado. Silence at the concert is required. Music will be played by a typical trio: a "Fadista" (term for Fado singer), a classical guitar player and a Portuguese guitar player. You will hear 9-10 Fados and 2 instrumentals songs.

Best Introduction to traditional fado
Aug 2020
The BEST place to learn about Fado for non-Portuguese visitors. I'm glad I found this especially since Ricardo (one of the guitarist) and the singer were so informative.
Show officially starts at 6, but you can get there 15-20 minutes earlier and speak with the performers in Portuguese, or English. Afterwards you get your free glass of port wine and the singer then tells you about the emotions and the different subject in fado. Before the start of each song, she'll tell you what it's about so you can get a feeling for what she's singing (all in Portuguese) and appreciate it. There's a instrumental-only part of a song in there too.
The performers stress that this is more traditional fado where they'll play a "happier" popular songs, but their specialty will be on original type of songs.
Overall, great introduction to fado and amazing performance. Buy your tickets online. The bar is a little unique too.

Great fado club in Porto
Aug 2020
The specific characteristic of this club, with respect to other similar places in Portugal, is that (at least the day we visited it) the kind of fado that was performed was only "fado tradicional", that is, the most authentic kind of fado.
Also, if you go there 20 minutes before the beginning of the actual show, Ricardo will give you a detailed explanation of the traditional fado, which helps for a better understanding of the whole experience.
The guitar players and the singers were excellent.
If you add that the price of the show also includes a glass of Porto wine, which makes the experience even more authentic and enjoyable, it's hard to imagine how anybody could miss this experience in Porto.

Whoever said fado is miserable was mistaken
Dec 2019
It was a joy. The singer is mischievous, saucy, passionate, and the musicians are on top of their game. On top of a generous glass of port, I can't think of a better introduction. Thursday night - just go!

Amazing Fado experience!
Aug 2019 • Family
We went for lunch to Galeria Paris, and we loved the place. Therefore we didn't hesitate to attend the Fado performance they organized during the afternoon, and we couldn't have chosen a better option!
The explanations of the musicians about how Fado is played and the styles it has - in Spanish and English, so everyone could understand- we really helpful and interesting, and the performance was perfect. You can feel how the music touches your soul and you get that feeling of goosebumps.
Strongly recommended experience if you are in Porto!
