Portugal is a country that moves between melancholy and modernity. This ambivalence comes in the famous Portuguese song, the Fado, expression in which the Portuguese soul lives. Fado literally means "fate" and is in the cities Lisbon and Coimbra emerged. In him, the Portuguese mourn their glorious past, sing of unhappy love and tell of social ills. Of the Fado lives from many influences and also carries Arab elements in itself. The sense of life of the saudade, the yearning, is expressed by different minor tones and pitches and connects the Portuguese with each other. The most famous singer of the Fado is Amália Rodrigues, which is considered the embodiment of this genre. Let yourself be in one holiday home enchanted by the sounds of Portugal.
