#9 - LISTEN TO THE MELANCHOLIC SOUNDS OF FADO
Thanks to a
generation of young artists gaining international recognition such as Mariza
(who won Best European Act of the BBC Awards for World Music in 2003),
has been revived.
The country's melancholic sound was born in Lisbon's old quarters where there are several taverns and fine dining restaurants known as "Fado Houses" with both amateur and professional performers.
Although many of these places are packaged specifically for tourists, the most authentic ones (found in Alfama) should be part of your Lisbon experience.
