Fado Nosso, Fado ensemble

Fado is often described as portuguese blues, but that’s only part of the story. Songs are often mournful, embodying the profound, bittersweet yearning of “saudade”. But fado, which means fate or destiny, interprets many sides of life, and exactly what makes it fado has a great deal to do with the depth of the emotion expressed, whether the song be whimsical or tragic. Overall, its about passion, not sadness, and what each of our passions provokes.
Featuring players from RVA groups including The Larri Branch Agenda, The Richmond Guitar Quartet, Gypsy Roots and Moruza, Fado Nosso draws upon influences from jazz, classical, flamenco and folk, playing a fado that is true to its roots, yet decidedly original. This is “our fado”, o fado nosso.
