Fado – Intangible Cultural Heritage
Fado is a unique Portuguese music style. Fado songs are usually performed by a solo singer (fadista) and accompanied by a classical guitar and a Portuguese guitar. Fado was distinguished as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2011.
Fado is a way for the Portuguese people to express their feelings about various topics with a unique sound worldwide. This is an experience not to be missed!
“I might not know who you are, but I know who I am.”
And things could be no different, when someone who sings these words is someone who has always perceived Fado to be her destiny, but who was only able to openly admit it after she truly understood who she was.
In 2009, Carminho sang “Fado”. This was her fado, the one she owned since an early age, when she listened to her parents’ records, when she witnessed the gathering of fado singers in her own house and when, still a teenager, she began to sing in the Taverna do Embuçado. This “Fado” was the title of her first album, which was one of the most awaited albums in the new generation of fado singers: for those who had already heard Carminho, her talent was obvious, but they had to wait – until she finished her graduation, until she travelled the world, until she knew who she really was.
Carminho is without any doubt one of the best fado singers ever.
