    FADO MINOR, AND NOT ONLY, PRODUCED BY ONE OF THE GIANTS OF PORTUGUESE MUSIC

    Maybe unexpected, or not. At this point in his career, musician-songwriter José Mário Branco made an intervention on Fado. Produced the new album by the fado singer Kátia Guerreiro. This sentence should express the effort and understanding that has been imposed: “It’s not just music, it’s not just lyrics, it’s not just style. It is […]

    This sentence should express the effort and understanding that has been imposed:

    “It’s not just music, it’s not just lyrics, it’s not just style. It is the search for truth. It’s fado.”

    In 2017 we participated actively in the 2nd edition of this race in which dozens of athletes participate, this year also with the possibility of subscribers to walk.

    This is a way of drawing the attention of the Portuguese to something that belongs to them, Fado, also to the world since UNESCO elevated it to the Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

    The departure was given again at Radio Amália, and the first stop in 2018 was once again the Fado Museum. Then the chapels literally went through, and the conviviality at the end was made in the Fadistagem Room, at Adega Machado, with fado, of course, drinks and snacks. Last year the party took place in Luso Café (Café Luso).

    It is worth mentioning in this edition the visit to the one that was the home of the fado singer Amália Rodrigues, now foundation.

    The Fado Racing initiative, with the support of the Fado & Food Group, owes everything to its mentor, Vítor Aguilar.
