:::: Filipa Tavares: "Traditional Fado concert” 

Always willing to break Fado music stereotypes, she decided to adopt the lyrics of Portuguese poets, including the Portuguese Nobel laureate, José Saramago, as well as Camões and José Régio to her interpretation of Fado – a unique musical genre, considered by UNESCO, as an essential part of the World´s Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Without altering Fado’s inner musical core, Filipa’s warm and powerful voice is an invitation for the listener to experiment the Portuguese language, traditions and soul.

To celebrate the World Portuguese Language Day, and Nobel Laureate José Saramago’s Centennial birth, Filipa Tavares and accompanists will perform live, at the Residence of the Ambassador of Portugal.

This concert is co-sponsored by the Embassy of Portugal in Washington, DC, and the Camões, IP.
