Fado

O Fado nasceu um dia, quando o vento mal bulia e o céu o mar prolongava, na amurada dum veleiro, no peito dum marinheiro que, estando triste, cantava, que, estando triste, cantava. (...) José Régio, in 'Poemas de Deus e do Diabo'

Amália Rodrigues - Portuguese queen of Fado music, Amazing singer!

Fado (Portugal). 'Born in a working-class neighbourhood of Lisbon, the melancholic music of fado has been around for centuries. Despite its years, fado remains a living art, heard in tiny mom-and-pop restaurants and  elegant music halls alike. A lone, powerful voice coupled with the 12-string Portuguese guitarra are all the tools needed to bring some listeners to tears.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/portugal/lisbon

In an Emotionless World, There Is Still Fado - by Elysabeth Alfano @FearNoArtChgo, @Huffington Post Travel 13.06.2012 | Fado is a uniquely Portuguese folk music sung to often slow, melancholic string music created from the Portuguese 12 string guitar, a regular guitar and sometimes a base or third string insturment. Singers croon and lament, often women with a low, vibrating tone, about lost loves, olden times, the cards that life has dealt and the ravages of the sea... #Portugal
