Fado

by Christa May. 11, 2013 5936 views

Fado is a typical Portuguese music genre and is inscribed since 2011 in the Unesco Intgangible Cultural Heritage Lists.
Fado is a word that comes from the Latin word “fatum”, which meant fate, destiny and the music is characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics, mostly about the sea, a hard life, a sentiment of resignation, melancholia and longing.

Excellent portrait...full of emotion. The b/w tones and light on the woman's face really enhance the dejected mood. Great work, Christa!

Eu acho que a imagem representa bem o caráter do fado. Eu gosto de fados de Ana Moura.

Todas as linhas da vida ficaram marcadas na face desta senhora. Quantas histórias, quantas alegrias e tristezas. Simplesmente emocionante. Favoritos, claro.

Voilà un portrait bien émouvant .
Ici nous n'avons pas le Fado ...
Nous avons un genre "apparenté" , "Gwerz"
[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gwerz]... Wikipédia ...[/url] ***In Breton music, the gwerz tells a story which can be epic, historical, or mythological. The stories are usually of a tragic nature. The gwerz is characterised by an often monotonous melody and many couplets, all in the Breton language. Though historically sung unaccompanied, some modern musicians use limited instrumentation with the gwerz.***
Si vous en avez le temps[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFsvg99emAw] ... passez par ici ... [/url] pour 2 voix celtiques ...
