Cultural program dedicated to fado and Cante Alentejano in Beja

The program started today with the inauguration of the collective photography exhibition ‘Beja – Terra Sonora’, which marks the classification of fado and cante alentejano as Cultural and Immaterial Heritage of Humanity.

The exhibition, which runs until January 15, at the UNESCO Center in Beja, brings together works by photographers Ricardo Zambujo, Susana Teixeira, Miguel Valente, Ana Espinho, and José Espinho.
