Enjoy a private concert that transports you to the streets of Lisbon without ever leaving the house. In this virtual version of a popular Airbnb Experience (https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/320330), you’ll get immersed in the mystical world of Fado music. Declared "Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity" by UNESCO, Fado music, and more importantly Fado concerts, are an essential part of life in Lisbon. With a 30-minute live concert and accompanying Q&A, we’ll explore its rich history and roots and the most emblematic fado singers, musicians, and composers. You’ll receive a setlist with lyrics and translations for each song that I perform, so that you can understand the magic of this music tradition. So sit back with a glass of vinho verde and enjoy the sounds of Lisboa.
My name is Maja Milinkovic, and I’m an internationally recognized professional fado singer/songwriter with five award-winning albums. My latest album, “Fadolinka,” ranks among the 20 best world music albums on the World Music Chart for 2019. I attended the Music Academy of Sarajevo to get a degree in classical music and have worked as a singing instructor and vocal coach. I fell in love with Fado (traditional Portuguese music) 12 years ago and changed my life to follow my passion for it. I live in Lisbon, Portugal, and my mission is to help other people discover this beautiful and deep style of music. Fado is more than music— it’s a way of life. Please join me on this unforgettable musical journey. To read reviews for my in-person experiences on fado, please look at my profile: https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/195468826
