here’s a little performance that i recorded recently at the portuguese national day, at the residence of ambassador antonio quinteiro mobre and madame marina nobre. antonio and marina are lovely people, and it was a very nice evening, the highlight being a short performance by 4 korean fado musicians. who knew that fado was listened to, much less performed, in korea? so many national day events are, well, a bit dull, but this captured the warmth and vivacity of portugal … not to mention it’s fine cuisine! holding it in their home was, i think, part of that.
unfortunately, i have not been able to get the names of the performers, but i do have the song titles and original performers.
