This year, Sou do Fado is leaving the squares and taking the music of Lisbon to some of the city’s most beautiful gardens and parks. Four fadistas of differing styles will be performing their latest work, accompanied by virtuoso musicians at these open-air concerts.

“Fado & Piano” is an innovative work in which Maria Ana Bobone provides vocals and piano, giving us her own take on the songs, lyrics and arrangements she performs, imbuing them with a different and particular colour. Recovering a forgotten tradition (at the end of the 19th century fado was accompanied by piano, before it later gave way to the Portuguese guitar, fado guitar and acoustic bass guitar), this work carefully serves Portuguese song (fado and traditional music), providing it with a soft atmosphere and a unique feeling of space and harmony. All the arrangements and details have been handled with care, with the central concern of highlighting the purity of fado in mind, with all the emotional load that entails, thereby opening doors to a new and original path. The ensemble includes piano, Portuguese guitar, viola and double bass. The result is a unique concert, reflecting an eclectic approach, which includes popular and scholarly contributions, both recent and old.
