    At Teatro São Luiz, the compatibility between Humor and Fado was reflected. The challenge came from comedians Ricardo Araújo Pereira and Bruno Nogueira, inserted in the cycles of conversations Tragedy + Time.

    The session was attended by the fadistas Camané, Ricardo Ribeiro and Celeste Rodrigues and the pianist Mário Laginha, who discussed the dimension of the presence of humor in music.

    Fado became popular by singing tragedy and heartache, but it is possible to find humor and satire in some of its lyrics.

    You can laugh with Fado. Fates, because they are so tragic, can become comical. Fadistas, especially men, attribute nicknames to each other. For example, Ricardo Ribeiro is the “pisa-papéis”, João Braga the “Mite”, Nuno da Câmara Pereira the “Perfeito Calhau”.

    According to Camané, it is laughable when someone sings Fado with an accent or another language, because the Portuguese language is the only one that fits the sound.
