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. Please join me on this unforgettable musical journey.

A lovely way to experience the culture of Lisbon while we’re not able to travel! Maja has an amazing voice and weaves the history of Fado through the music in an engaging way. Perfect for our date night!

Maja had beautiful voice and we were moved by her music even though it's thousand miles away over just an internet connection. Loved learning about the culture and Amalia. Truly can not wait to be able to listen to her music live in person in Portugal in the future!!!

I gave this as a gift to my mother - she was delighted as we had missed out on a fado concert while in Portugal last year. The music was great, the history was interesting and the way Maja brought the participants into the concert were all great hits!
