Christine K. – United Kingdom
Beautiful music & wonderful explanation of the cultural history
Be sure to arrive early! The singers will spend the first 10 minutes answering questions about Fado, which was very informative and interesting. The musicians and singers are very talented. This is an intimate setting - probably less than 50 people in the room. Such a special experience.
