Fábia Rebordão, also distinguished with an Amália Award, will be accompanied by musicians Rui Poço, on Portuguese guitar, Jorge Fernando, on viola, and José Ganchinho, on bass.
The Fado Festival, with the support of the Fado Museum, aims to promote the Portuguese language and culture, and has been held for 11 years, having already been present in 11 cities on four continents
