Concert 6: Fado & the Portuguese Guitar
Sunday 16 Dec, 6.30-7.30 pm
Artistes: Ricardo J Martins & Fernando Ponte
Fado is the traditional folk music from Portugal described by UNESCO as an “Intangible Cultural Heritage”. It is usually characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics, often about the sea or the life of the poor, and infused with a sentiment of resignation, fatefulness, and melancholia. The Portuguese Guitar (an ethnic instrument which resembles more the mandolin than the contemporary) is the main accompanying instrument for this song.
