Fado is linked to the Portuguese word ‘saudade’, a hard to define word conjuring up the sense of loss and homesickness felt by sailors. The soulful songs can be accompanied by solo guitar, a string quartet or even a full orchestra.
It’s easy to experience the romance of fado while you’re in Lisbon. Combine dinner and a fado floorshow with folk dance and music at one of the city’s renowned fado restaurants.
