“The History of Fado” Exhibit

Posted: April 22nd, 2015

The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures (LLCU) presents a poster exhibit entitled: “The History of Fado” courtesy of Camões I.P.  Fado is a performance genre incorporating music and poetry widely practised by various communities in Lisbon. It represents a Portuguese multicultural synthesis of Afro-Brazilian sung dances, local traditional genres of song and dance, musical traditions from rural areas of the country, and the cosmopolitan urban song patterns of the early nineteenth century. The dissemination of Fado through emigration and the world music circuit has reinforced its image as a symbol of Portuguese identity, leading to a process of cross-cultural exchange involving other musical traditions (UNESCO.org) 20 April to 11 May 2015 Joseph S. Stauffer Library, Queen’s University.
