Fado is the traditional way of singing and playing in Lisbon. Considered world heritage, it was born in the old neighborhoods of the city. Enter Mouraria, the old neighborhood of the Moors, birthplace of Fado, where the true multicultural colors of Lisbon show up, and on this tour, you will have a true experience of Fado.
You will be taken on a journey, through Lisbon's musical tradition and history, by a local professional singer who has learned the way it has been done for generations - from the old generation to the new - and who will sing essential themes of Portuguese culture just for you in a very exclusive performance.
This very unique singing guide will share with you the history of this art and particular details about local performers who have contributed to the development of this most amazing kind of music. Then, in the small typical squares of the neighborhood, we will all listen to her Fado performances finishing up with some tastings at Mouraria's School of Fado, in a sublime experience that stimulates all your senses, from the ears to the tastebuds.
The tour includes the tasting of Portuguese traditional chouriço and Ginjinha (cherry liqueur).
