Market Screening ‘Fado with Gisela‘

Presented by RTP - Rádio e Televisão de Portugal

Fado is so much more than a musical genre - it is an attitude to life! With her art, Gisela João puts her own icing on the cake of the unique tradition of Fado: Modern and at the same time idiosyncratic, she interprets the Portuguese musical style and breathes a unique form of Weltschmerz, melancholy, and hope into it with her smoky voice and her total devotion. Gisela João creates a concert that reflects, what she considers to be a cross-section of the history of fado - all through her musical references. With this concert, she presents the timelessness of this musical genre. "Fado is always about telling something about people's lives, whether in 1940 or 2023," she says. As a translation of everyday life, it cannot have a deadline and is constantly changing; it is a circular concept - and that is what Gisela demonstrates in this concert. We are looking forward to songs like Maldição, Louca, Meu Amigo Está Longe, Que Deus Me Perdoe and many others, recorded in the unique architecture of the Antiga Fundição de Oeiras near Lisbon. Gisela João opens future paths through the past, proposing a musical autobiography that begins in Portugal and can be seen throughout Europe.


Gisela João will be in attendance at the event. 


Before the screening, participants will get an opportunity to sample Port wine at the EuroArts Booth in the Networking area.
