”Although Coimbra fado originated in the cobbled streets of the city, it is also performed and
enjoyed indoors on a daily basis at Fado ao Centro by passionate and talented musicians, all of
whom are current and former students of Coimbra University. Our genuine love of fado is
portrayed through our music which penetrates the heart and soul of the audience, even if they
don’t understand a word of Portuguese.
Fado ao Centro can be translated as “fado in the centre” or “fado to the centre”. We like to
think of it as “fado to the core” – of our country, our city and ourselves. Our love of fado is so
strong that we want to share it with others, be they fellow musicians and academics, local fans
who enjoy allowing themselves to be transported by the emotions aroused by our songs, or
curious visitors who may never even have heard of Coimbra fado.”
