Al-Mouraria and Teresa Tapadas perform unique Fado concert at Vale do Lobo

Discover Fado music with an intimate concert by the Al-Mouraria group and guest Fado singer Teresa Tapadas at the Vale do Lobo Auditorium on Saturday, October 26, from 7.30pm.

Created in 2003, the Al mouraria project emerged and grew, receiving great acceptance from the public, consolidating itself since then with numerous performances, from festivals and pilgrimages to the best auditoriums and theatres in the country.

Portuguese guitar, acoustic guitar, double bass and accordion, as well as two female voices accompany guest singer Teresa Tapadas, in what promises to be a magical night of true talent and musicality.

Teresa Tapadas is part of a new generation of Fado singers who have revived the musical genre. Based on the tradition of Portuguese music, Teresa Tapadas’ interpretations include elements of innovation, thus giving a new glow to the feelings of great Portuguese poets whose words turn into music with Fado.

Renditions during the evening will feature renowned Fado pieces including “Amar Amar” from Florbela Espanca and Teresa Silva Carvalho, “Ai Maria” from Amália Rodrigues and Carlos Gonçalves, “Na Boca de Toda a Gente” from Tiago Torres da Silva and Daniel Gouveia”, and many others.

Tickets to the event, costing €20, can be purchased online from the Vale do Lobo official website, or directly from the resort’s reception desk.
