Fado: The Sound of Portugal

Fado is the mournful music decries the dictatorship days in Portugal's history. But as a solemn singer pours their heart out to the audience, often overlooked is the guitar player sitting next to them. Well, that's no guitar and it is called a cittern. The stringed instrument is a Renaissance gem for modern times. #Fado #Portugal #Music
