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.
