The Origins

The soul of Portuguese music. Fado is known to have originated around the 1820s. It is known for how expressive and profundly melancholic it is. A fado musician will sing about the hard realities of daily life, balancing both a resignation and hopefulness that a resolution to its torments can still occur. It can be described by using the Portuguese word “saudade”, which means “longing” and stands for a feeling of loss. This loss is generall permanent and of long-term consequence.
