Lisbon Tour – The Home of Fado

Posted on February 15th, 2012 in Music Travel, Recent posts by .

Lisbon, Portugal
Four days – June 14-17 2012
For the last decade or so, there’s been a real revival of interest in fado, with Mariza at the forefront of a new generation of artists bringing new life to the music. On this trip we’ll experience fado as the locals enjoy it, in some of the best tavernas and clubs.

Each venue has its own atmosphere and character so you’ll get a good taste of the city’s scene. We’ll visit the excellent Museum of Fado and the Portuguese Guitar, the former home of Amália Rodrigues (1920-1999) – the ‘Queen of Fado’ – and enjoy a walking trip through the historic fado districts of Alfama and Mouraria. And don’t forget, Lisbon is also a fantastic place for Brazilian and Cape Verdean music. Drop by the website for a full itinerary and details or download a pdf of the itinerary here.
