When Fado is sung the world hears passion, saudade and the heartbreaks in life. Fado is a music genre that can be traced back to the 1820s, in Lisbon, Portugal, but probably has much earlier origins. That is the soul of the Portuguese people, transcribed onto this guitar through a painting that expresses a Portuguese reality. Painted in 1910 by José Vital Branco Malhoa, this work expresses the feelings lived from the taverns to the songs that tell stories in melancholic verses known as Fado. The Fado Portuguese Guitar is the result of an emotional and traditional inspiration, being a one-of-a-kind addition to your home décor.
