Celebrate the soulful Fado music of Portugal with Marta Pereira da Costa, the world’s first and only professional female guitarist in this genre.

Fado is a multicultural synthesis of Afro-Brazilian music, local genres of song and dance, rural music, and urban song influences of the early 1800s. It was recently acknowledged by UNESCO as part of the World’s Intangible Cultural Heritage.
