Bringing the Rhythms of Portugal to Sydney

Portugal is famous for its music, being one of the most ancient countries in Europe. One of its most famous music genres is Fado, a type of Portuguese singing known for its expressive and melancholic character. It can best be described by using the Portuguese word “saudade”, which means equal parts “longing” and “nostalgia”. 

Come join us at the Lusomia Music Festival!
