“Fado no Ateneu”, the magic of fado at Ateneu Comercial do Porto

Starting in May, the Salão Nobre of Ateneu Comercial do Porto will open its doors to Fado with the initiative “Fado no Ateneu”. The public will be able to attend musical sessions from Tuesday to Saturday, at 6.30 pm, with the offer of a glass of Port wine.

During this month, “Fado no Ateneu” welcomes the young fado singer Adriana Paquete, born in Póvoa de Varzim, who has been singing since she was 12 and, at that age, starred in the show “Annie”, by Filipe La Féria. In March, she released her first album “Meu Coração”, which presents a unique perspective on traditional fado, honoring those with whom she learned – Amália Rodrigues, Beatriz da Conceição, Fernanda Maria, and António Rocha.

The fado singer will be accompanied by André Teixeira, on the viola. Born in the city of Porto, she began her career as a violist very young, strongly influenced by the sounds of fado. He has played with fado singers such as Ricardo Ribeiro, Cuca Roseta, and Beatriz da Conceição, among others. And with great figures of the Portuguese guitar like José Fontes Rocha, Ângelo Freire, Pedro Amendoeira and Mário Pacheco; and João Martins on the Portuguese guitar, born in Barcelos, he is a multi-instrumentalist with a passion for traditional musical manifestations, and everything associated with Portuguese-speaking chordophones. He went through the most varied stages, from summer festivals to fado houses and concert halls.
