It is impossible to walk the streets of Lisbon and not listen to Fado, Portuguese music of popular origin that was elevated to Intangible Heritage by UNESCO in 2011 Image … to understand the true charm of Fado, we have to listen to it live and we must remain silent, close our eyes and let the voice of the fadista and the melancholy of the Portuguese guitar touch us in the heart.
