Fado is a Portuguese genre of music which emerged in the first half of the 19th century in Alfama, a district in the capital of Portugal, Lisbon. It literally means „fate”. It is known for its expressive and profundly melancolic character. The fado singers often speaks about harsh realities of life and 'saudade' - an emotional state of longing for an absent something or somebody that one loves. Fado music has become incredibly popular all over the world because of its uniqueness and emotional power.
An intimate and delicate solo concert will be held in KoncertKirken, Copenhagen.
