Rodrigo is tradition and popularity in Portugal´sfado millieu. He is also a live testimony of the multiple expressions of this particular musical genre and its evolution. This is what we see when we look at Rodrigo: a simple and straightforward69 year-old-man, who, just like fado, has become one of the main expressions of portuguese culture.
