Fado is the local music. It is said to have originated in the Alfama region of Lisbon, with the university students of Coimbra changing the context to one of romance or protest. In the Coimbra style, only men sing, but in the general fado style, women also sing. We went to a performance at fado centro, which is supporting the resurgence of fado music and fado performers.
