With smoldering intensity and a yearning heart, Tudo Isto É Fado peers into the poetry and seductive sounds of Fado, Portugal's soulful national song style in a special two-day presentation. December 2 features exquisite performances from Lisbon's finest musicians, tracing the roots of Fado through the Portuguese guitar and a multigenerational vocal ensemble, coupled with the US debut of Camané, a powerhouse vocalist and the leading male Fadista of his generation. December 3 offers a glimpse into the future of Fado and Portuguese regional music with the sprightly pop music of Deolinda, an acoustic quartet from Lisbon, and Amália Hoje, who recasts the beloved songs of "Queen of Fado" Amália Rodrigues with fresh arrangements that combine orchestral pop, rock, and electronica.

Venue Description: A multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, offering theater, dance, music, opera, film, and more from emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
