Live music, eyes set on the Tagus and a glass of wine in hand make up the Hour of Bacchus, a proposal of the Museum of Lisbon - Roman Theater for the late afternoon of the last Thursday of each month.
In May, the stage is of the group Al'Fado.
The entrance is free and subject to the stocking of the space. Until then!
This initiative was sponsored by Cooperativa Agrícola de Stº Isidro de Pegões (Adega de Pegões)
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 Gal Tamir, Avishay Back on bass guitar and double bass, João Roque on guitars and Diogo Melo de Carvalho on percussions and melodica. 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.
