Fado is currently a world wide known symbol of Portugal, being represented for many years in foreign countries by Amália Rodrigues, and more recently by Dulce Pontes, Mariza and Katia Guerreiro, among others. These nostalgic and melancholic songs are considered the ultimate expression of the spirit of Portugal: tinged with sadness and beauty. Fall in love with this style of music and then you can enjoy the delights of Portuguese cuisine.
