    FERNANDO COSTA, THE LEAVING

    The musician, guitar bass of fado, Fernando Costa left us, suddenly, the 4th of September. He was invariably well disposed, this news might seem like a bad joke which left us incredulous. Excellent person, excellent musician, that is consensual, someone who left the same good impressions with whom he crossed. He left early, suddenly, so […]

    Excellent person, excellent musician, that is consensual, someone who left the same good impressions with whom he crossed.

    He left early, suddenly, so we missed him that very night, as he had his usual performance at Café Luso.

    They joined the four on the corner, they tuned to build a guitar … with wheels!

    Last Sunday the “autofado” team presented the vehicle at the Red Bull Grand Prix, the World’s Crazy Race!

    They say this is an event for the idiots, funny people, the fearless.

    The vehicle took a year and a half to build and weighs about 70 kg.

    In this group of friends we have two nurses, a programmer, and a mechanical metal worker who is also a fado guitarist.

    Many know, fado singer Amália Rodrigues had one of her main refuges in Brejão farm (south coast of Portugal). Over the years she even created ties with the local community. This explains the intervention of the artist of “street art”, Ivo Santos. The images, painted in municipal buildings of the Brejão, are 8 meters high, […]

    Many know, fado singer Amália Rodrigues had one of her main refuges in Brejão farm (south coast of Portugal). Over the years she even created ties with the local community.

    This explains the intervention of the artist of “street art”, Ivo Santos. The images, painted in municipal buildings of the Brejão, are 8 meters high, 15 meters long.

    In October there will be a public visit to the house of the diva of the fado, in her memory and will end with a night of fados.
