BATE FADO

Jonas&Lander new creation is entitled BATE FADO, a hybrid performance, between dance and a music concert designed for five dancers, a fado singer and four musicians. Like most of urban musical movements, such as Samba or Flamenco, also Fado had its own dances. In Lisbon, the dance with major expression was Fado Batido, a dance inspired in energetic and virtuous tap dance. In BATE FADO, Jonas&Lander purpose to reinterpret and to recover the act of hitting (tapping) Fado, where dance emanates the quality of a percussion instrument in dialogue with the voice and the guitars. 

BATE FADO reveals as the first step to recover the dance that Fado lost!

Bate Fado is part of the cycle Há Fado no Cais, a co-production with EGEAC/Fado Museum
