Fado, but with a difference
There is Fado and there is Fado. Fado Ao Centro from Coimbra, is entirely different to the better-known Fado from Lisbon. Even those who do not speak Portuguese will immediately grasp the emotions of this timeless music: nostalgia, love, sorrow, absence, and friendship. João Farinha breathes new life into the classic Fado, with his own lyrics, new instruments and above all, his unique warm voice. Allow yourself to be overwhelmed by this velvety male voice and a handful of strings!
