Coimbra, Portugal: Fado Music

November 20, 2019


We’re dropping into
a tiny theater to enjoy a fado performance. [ Man singing in Portuguese ] ♪♪ Fado is a uniquely
Portuguese style of music, soulful and nostalgic. While most fado is sung
by the women, here in Coimbra, it’s the men. The songs
are serenades of love — usually sad, unanswered love. These troubadours have long
provided the soundtrack for life here in Coimbra. [ Singing continues ] ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ [ Music ends, applause ]
