What you'll do
We will start the experience with a glass of wine in a local "tasca" - Portuguese restaurant where I will give you a comprehensive introduction to fado: how it began, what is "saudade", the technicalities of singing and playing fado, who are the most important fado singers that you should know about. After the introduction, we will listen to a live performance in a historical fado house in Lisbon. We will listen to fado singers and I will also sing two or three fado songs for you. After my performance, I will reply your questions and curiosities about fado.
My name is Maja Milinkovic. I am a fado singer who lives in Lisbon, Portugal. My love for fado started 10 years ago when I was a famous pop-rock singer in my country, Bosnia-Herzegovina and I heard Amalia Rodrigues for the first time, the Portuguese queen of fado. I fell in love and moved to Lisbon. Now I am sharing my passion for fado with travelers from all over the world. In this tour, I will give you a introduction to fado and take you on a tour in the historical neighborhood of Alfama where you can experience for yourself the passion that lies in the fado community.
1 glass of wine1 We can provide any alternative non-alcoholic drinks, such as juices, soft drinks or water.

Where you'll be
After we meet in front of the Fado museum we will go in one of the typical tavernas with a big history in Alfama. The original taverna was built in 1929 and includes part of the wall from the roman empire. For the fado performance we will go to one of the most iconic fado tascas(houses) in Lisbon, where many most famous artists started singing. Usually the place is fully reserved so we will have a special reservation.
