Where you'll be

We’ll start in Mouraria, tracing the roots of fado’s first singers and seeing the lasting impact they had on the neighbourhood. Next we’ll visit my favourite fado house, where my friends are waiting to give you a private show. There we’ll have some food and drinks, before heading to the Alfama neighbourhood, home to fado’s modern-day representations.
