Fado is the most evocative of the melancholy feeling as perhaps no other type of music can. The popular culture of Lisbon finds in fado its gender of expression. Both male and female voices and guitar-chords tie the stories of regrets and feelings.
In Lisbon there are many fado houses in which to attend live music performances, including some that include both dinner and show. The quarters of Alfama, Bairro Alto, and Madragoa Mouraria are the most recommended to inquire about fado live.
