Fado is the most traditional music genre from Portugal. It was considered World’s Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2011. This album is for all who enjoy the tradition and habits behind the fado music.
"'Saudade' was once described as "the love that remains" after someone is gone. Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again."
