Al’Fado is a new musical program constructed mostly of music originating from the Iberian Peninsula. This music goes back to the Jewish / Hebrew communities living in the region in medieval times and it’s sang in an ancient dialect of Spanish mixed with Portuguese and Hebrew called Ladino.
Al’Fado is half Israeli and half Portuguese. The group features Singer and Clarinet player - Gal Tamir, Avishay Back on Bass guitar, João Roque on Guitars and Diogo Melo de Carvalho on Percussion. The group is based in the rich and varied music scene of Lisbon, the multicultural capital of Portugal.
The beauty of this music is now available to new audiences. This tradition is very much inspired by other local musical genres such as Fado and Flamenco, which are noticeable in this musical program.
