#Lisbon: Sound of Fado - An all senses experience

"You don´t understand nor explain Fado, you feel it.”– Amália Rodrigues

Sound of Fado is much more than a tour, it’s an experience. Here the local/guide is replaced by a Fado singer that will take you on a journey through the different moments in the history of Fado, but above all will guide you through a musical style that needs 5 senses to be felt. We will ask you to close your eyes and listen with your heart. You will feel how simple it is to accept fate and to celebrate it in a song.

We cannot explain Fado. This experience shows you its history and leads you to understand and feel Fado.

The experience ends with a dinner at Associação Fado Casto, an association created by the “Mesa de Frades” founders, one of the most respected Portuguese fado houses in Lisbon. The aim of this Association is to preserve the identity of Fado. Fado Casto reinvents the ancient environment of the typical restaurants of Lisbon called “tascas”. You will enjoy about 25 local dishes of the Portuguese gastronomy, while listening to some of the oldest and contemporary highly recognized Fado singers in town.

Despite being classified as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by Unesco, in this experience you will hear about Fado and also listen to it. A complete experience that will make you feel Fado and consequently the soul of Lisbon.

Highlights: Walking experience with a Fado singer where you go into the oldests districts of Lisbon which happens to be where Fado was born. A more than 20 course local tasting. Fado performances by genuine singers.
