Dubrovnik is playing homage to the best of Portugese music tonight with a rather special concert of Fado music. Ivo Perkušić and Fado5 will hold a concert tonight in the atmospheric Marin Drzic theatre in the heart of the Old City of Dubrovnik and it should be entertaining.
This is unique musical experience that brings Portuguese music in a contemporary way that merges the ocean and the Mediterranean! The repertoire is made up of some of the best fado songs.
Fado is a music that was born around 1861 in Coimbra, the Portuguese university town, where men were first introduced to it, and only later developed into a popular female variant that today has differing forms across the Portuguese territory while Coimbra still maintains the tradition of male fadists.
This concert tonight by Ivo and FADO5 will bring the same feel from Portugal and the group have performed at many major and important cultural events of Croatian stages.
