Join us for an evening of soulful Fado music from one of it’s most exciting young singers and her band (the artist’s name is a surprise).
Fado lies at the heart of the Portuguese soul, deeply expressive yet highly lyrical. It could be the world oldest urban folk music, arriving perhaps as a dance from Africa, or maybe form the sad songs of homesick sailors.
Whatever its origins, its themes are constant – destiny, betrayal in love, loss, longing and yearning that can’t be satisfied.
Our singer has appeared at WOMAD Festival and has recently performed at the BBC3′ Radio sessions “Live at the South Bank Centre”.
Wines and tapas available on the night.
