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.

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.

Maja is a wonderful host. She gave us a beautiful Fado concert. As a renowned singer, she knows a lot about the history of this style of music, knows about current trends and activities and has a real passion for the craft. I knew barely anything about Fado and my husband is a fan, yet Maja managed to keep us both entertained and enthralled. I 100% recommend it.

It was lovely connecting with people across the globe to learn about Fado and hear Maja’s incredible voice and story. It was well worth our time and will be a very fond memory.

Maja has a deep knowledge of Fado culture and a fascinating perspective coming to it as an accomplished musician from outside Portugal. She clearly loves what she does, and it showed.

Maja took us into the wonderful world of fado with a warm embrace, sharing stories from both her personal life and the long history of this soulful art. My friend and I were lucky to be the only party at the evening's performance, so it felt quite intimate. Thank you so much Maja for such a beautiful and passionate performance - we have your CDs on the way now!

It was a nice intimate performance of a special brand of music. Open to answering questions in between songs, it helped with learning the background of Fado. Looking forward to going there to hear live performances one day!
