Did you know that the word Fado means fate in Portuguese? It's also the name of the haunting music heard in Fado houses, along with cafes and bars all over Lisbon. Portugal is popular for offering the slow, mournful fado sung by men and women to the accompaniment of the Portuguese guitarra, a kind of 12-stringed mandolin. Fado is the expression of the Portuguese soul.
If you are looking out for real fado, it can be a challenge to sift through the mass of shows aimed at tourists. The Fado tour at A Different Type will give you a unique insight into the magical world of fado, with a private audience with one of our favourite Fado singers, Tiago. We will take you to Mouraria, the birthplace of Fado, where you will be given a brief introduction to the culture, before you experience the wonderful power of this exceptional music. A Different Type explores the hidden cultures, the ones the tourists don’t get shown. We’re here to break the rules and bring you the heart of Lisbon.
A Different Type is a group of artists, dreamers and explorers who have come together to show you our interpretation of Lisbon, and you can’t do Lisbon without Fado. We were drawn to Lisbon by the call of “Saudade”, a mythical portuguese concept that mixes longing and melancholy, which defies true explanation in words but is best understood through the enchanting music of Fado. A musician and poet himself, the artist has become more and more enthralled by this ancient folk music and over the years, having made friends with various Fado singers with the aim of learning the heritage of this musical style
On the Fado Tour by A Different Type you will get some snacks and drinks and then wander through Alfama, where you’ll see where modern-day fado lives. Since Fado cannot be truly appreciated just on a surface level, this tour draws you in to the enthralling story of this music, allowing you to engage emotionally with this sacred art, so that you’ll leave with a unique memory that will linger in your heart and soul forever.
A Different Type is a group of artists, musicians, dancers, poets, philosophers, entrepreneurs and spiritual explorers from all over the world, who have all chosen Lisbon as their home, and they want to share their experience in this magical city with you in their own, very unique way
