About us

“Fado is the weariness of the strong soul […]” (Fernando Pessoa)

Fado Club

Ideal Clube de Fado is a collective of artists dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of the Fado Tradicional, the singular music genre that encapsulates the Portuguese soul.


There are many ways to sing the Fado, but among our artists we cultivate a passion for the origins of this song, which was included in UNESCO’s lists of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2011.

At Ideal Clube de Fado, we believe that each concert is a live act of creation, a unique experience that is renewed every day and drinks from the inexhaustible source of this strange way of life that is to be Portuguese.
