    In steamy bars, where the music is always on offer and the drama is frequently high-pitched, strong-voiced singers and skilled guitarists tell their tales of woe and longing.

    Fado is one of the world’s oldest styles of urban song. It was born in the side-streets and alleys of typical old Lisbonneighbourhoods, such as Mouraria and Alfama. As Lisbon is a port city, fado bears the influence of music that arrived over the sea from former Portuguese colonies, including those in Africa and Brazil. It was out of this mix that fado emerged, and later spread throughout the country. In 2011 fado was awarded a place on UNESCO’s prestigious ‘Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity’.

    Also included is a fabulous full-length bonus album by the inimitable Cristina Branco. ‘Murmurios’ was originally released as Cristina’s second album and is now widely respected as a jewel in the fado repertoire.
