The origins of the Portugese Fado music and somewhat of a mystery. It is believed to have started in the 1820's and is characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics, often about the sea, friendship or the life of the poor. The word Fado means destiny or fate. The Teatros de Canal will hold its 3rd annual Fado festival filled with concerts, movies, conversations and an exposition of the history.
