In describing Portuguese music, writers always note that fado derives its name from the word "fate" suggesting a musical form somewhere between the blues and a Greek chorus.

Τhere are those who say that the Fado came to Portugal, through Lisbon, under the form of Lundum, the music of the Brazilian slaves. By this explanation, it should have arrived to Portugal with the sailors returning from their long trips across the oceans, approximately in the year of 1822.

Originally fado was sung in bars of ill repute in Lisbon in the nineteenth century, but the form became formalised and has developed into an art-form with its own rules and regulations. Today in Lisbon you can also find several ‘’Casa do Fado’’ with the most refined cuisine and atmosphere.
