Fado Night at Cafe Lucia
Café Lucia presents its 5th Annual Portuguese Fado Night event. Fado (meaning "Fate" in Portuguese) is the national song style of Portugal and is loosely described as Portuguese blues or Portuguese soul music. If you have traveled to Portugal or dined at Café Lucia, LaSalette Restaurant, Tasca Tasca you have heard Fado music.
This year, Fado will be presented in a more traditional setting. Fado's roots are imbedded in the old taverns and restaurants of Lisbon, were traditional Fado houses are still very common. Café Lucia is turning into one of these renowned "Casa de Fados" for this very special evening.
The evening will include dinner and performances from Chico Avila, Manuel Escobar, John Cardadeiro, as well as Mara Pedro joining us all the way from Lisbon, Portugal!
