Fandóziando - Fados, Mandós e Fantasias


Fado reveals another of its countless mysteries in Goa. In the territory of ancient Portuguese India, a genre emerged that sought to assimilate the Portuguese sounds (...). Mandó is something that not even the locals can quite define because it is an 'out of step' waltz that is intrinsically linked to the idea that the people who welcomed our music made of it. (...) Fado, Mandós e Fantasias join the violin under the cloak of the exoticism of Old Portuguese India in Goa. A Goa that goes from Damão to Diu, from Cochin to Bombay and from Calicut to Lisbon!
