By: earBOOKSFADO - no other portrayal of the Portuguese soul captures it as vividly as these wistful songs of heartbreak, unrequited love, and parting. Before Fado became socially acceptable at the end of the 19th century, it could only be heard in Lisbon's dark portside bars. Authentic photographs by Luis Pavao capture the mood of the sensual songs and melodies presented here. Music CD: The collection of music in 'Fado Portugues' serves as an introduction to the wise and weary lamentations on romance that Lisbon is famous for. Fado is more than a musical style, it is powerful enough to be an emotion in and of itself - restless, yearning, and wistful to the last lingering tone.
