Fado music is the very expression of the Portuguese spirit and one of the most popular music genres in the world. Etymologically, the word “Fado” comes from Latin, signifying the concept of fate which surrenders itself to love, sadness and death.
Fado music is always sung in semi-obscurity, accompanied by a guitar and a mandolin. We here at the “Dancing Lobster” organize each month live Fado music shows by artists from Portugal, thus making whole the authentic experience we wish to offer our guests. Fado music originates from early 19th century Portugal and was included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List from 2011.
