Fado means fate, and to the people of Portugal, the music is as powerful as destiny itself. Fado is a Portuguese urban folk music that grew out of the streets and taverns of Lisbon in the 19th Century. It is characterized by mournful melodies and lyrics, often about the sea, neighborhoods, or the life of the poor. It is infused with sentiments of resignation, nostalgia and deep melancholy. Fado is often called “The BLUES of Portugal.” This concert features one of today’s greatest living interpreters of fado, SONY recording artist Nathalie Pires.

A Co-production between The MTH Theater at Crown Center and Ensemble Ibérica.
