Portugal, and specially Lisbon, is synonym of Fado, while in your vacations you must not return from your travel without listen to fado.
If you want to get out of the tourist circuit and enjoy a truly Fado’s night, the place to go is the “Tasca do Chico”. The “Tasca do Chico” is a very special place, which you may prove from the various photos displayed there from both amateurs and professionals players and singers, and is situated inside the typical Bairro Alto.
You will listen to the more genuine “Fado Vadio” live on Mondays and Wednesdays nights in “Tasca do Chico”. It is usually very full, with people from all ages and backgrounds, if that’s the case don’t hurry about it, people usually are always entering and leaving. Meanwhile enjoy a walk and appreciate your time in Bairro Alto
We leave you two examples from youtube, take your time, listen the music and laughs, you will almost feel at home. And now “Silencio que se vai cantar o fado”, a famous expression meaning “silence, because fado fadio is going to be singed”.
