Actually this project does not have a concrete name; it’s the will that counts, not the fame. But it’s an honorable and a serious project to be accounted for.
Some months ago, Miguel Loureiro had an idea. An “unthinkable glimpse of genius” made him realize that he could offer fado as a gift to everyone that is unaware of this cultural milestone of Lisbon and Portugal or unwilling to pay for an expensive meal and a dedicated show. He, himself, could go to all the restaurants on the street to play and sing some fados to everyone willing to listen.
As a support and acknowledgement of his dedication more than his talent, he only asks for any coins you choose to give him. It’s a reward he deserves for the effort, effort and genuine performance.
But he didn’t want to, or could, do it alone. And this is when Fatinha Garcia comes in. A recently shy and crowd frightened girl snatched by Miguel to dazzle, her talent made the better of it and made her courageous. She bursts now as loudly and emotive as fado requires.
You can stumble upon this project every Friday at almost all the restaurants on and around Rua de São Cristóvão. On the list of the usually visited restaurants you can find “O Trigueirinho” (check the Tigueirinho article), “Cantinho do Aziz”, “O Eurico” and “O Amoraria”.
