What you'll do

Enjoy a private concert that transports you to the streets of Lisbon without ever leaving the house. In this virtual version of a popular Airbnb Experience (https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/320330), you’ll get immersed in the mystical world of Fado music.

Declared "Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity" by UNESCO, Fado music, and more importantly Fado concerts, are an essential part of life in Lisbon. With a 30-minute live concert and accompanying Q&A, we’ll explore its rich history and roots and the most emblematic fado singers, musicians, and composers.

You’ll receive a setlist with lyrics and translations for each song that I perform, so that you can understand the magic of this music tradition.

So sit back with a glass of vinho verde and enjoy the sounds of Lisboa.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

Good for company groups, team building, private groups, corporate teams.

My name is Maja Milinkovic, and I’m an internationally recognized professional fado singer/songwriter with five award-winning albums. My latest album, “Fadolinka,” ranks among the 20 best world music albums on the World Music Chart for 2019. I attended the Music Academy of Sarajevo to get a degree in classical music and have worked as a singing instructor and vocal coach.

I fell in love with Fado (traditional Portuguese music) 12 years ago and changed my life to follow my passion for it. I live in Lisbon, Portugal, and my mission is to help other people discover this beautiful and deep style of music. Fado is more than music— it’s a way of life. Join me on this unforgettable musical journey.

Maja introduced us to the world of Lisbon Fado, and let me tell you, it was amazing. Her desire and passion for the genre are evident. Fado has become her lifestyle. Maja had a great balance of singing and sharing historical information about the Fado's evolution. She is a beautiful person and has an amazing voice that transported us to Lisbon. You can truly feel the emotion and the power of her interpretations. I will definitely book her experience again.

Our Fado experience with Maja was fabulous. She brings so much talent, knowledge and passion to the concert. It was so rich and moving that I felt like I was back in Lisbon! I recommend this for all music lovers and anyone who is interested in learning about Portugal and is amazing history and culture.

Maja is really a warmhearted, charismatic person and such a wonderful singer. I felt part of a very unique and personal concert. At the same time I learned much about the background of fado (actually it was a perfect mixture, not too much talking ;-). I enjoyed a lot that she actually sang so many beautiful songs. Highly recommended !
