Guitar Fado

A masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, Fado is a reflection of Portugal. “Fado” derives from the word “fatum”, which in latin means “destiny”. That is why people say people say that Fado is sad, for expressing a destiny that can’t be altered. When Fado is sung, the world hears passions, saudade, and the heartbreaks in life. That is the soul of the Portuguese people, transcribed onto the Portuguese guitar by way of a painting that expresses Portuguese reality. From the taverns to the songs that tell stories in melancholic verses.
