The "Fado Nights" concert has been warmly welcomed by the local audience and the tourists since its launch in early March at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Dom Pedro V Theatre. With the aim of further enrich Macau's cultural and tourist scene, and to provide a unique experience of the charm of Fado to a wider audience, a new series of concerts featuring guest Portuguese fado singers Francisco Moreira and Marta de Sousa.

Francisco Moreira is an outstanding name in the new fado generation. With a melodious and engaging voice, he wins over audiences of all generations with his authenticity and commitment.He has been making his way in music since he was very young and has already achieved countless milestones in his career. He participated on television hits such as The Voice Portugal, and he won the Grande Prémio Nacional de Fado RTP in 2013. His original work has been featured on major national radio stations such as Antena 1, Rádio Amália, Festival, and Rádio Nova. He is also a regular presence in renowned fado houses. Francisco Moreira has already had the honour of playing on some of the biggest stages in Portugal, such as the Coliseu do Porto, Casa da Música, Centro Cultural de Belém and Casino Estoril. He also sung alongside some of fado's greatest names, such as Carminho, Rodrigo, Maria da Fé, Hélder Moutinho and Rodrigo Costa Félix. His discography includes the albums "Sonho de Um Fadista" (2011), "Kiko" (2016), and "Todos os Fados São Meus" (2020). In 2023, he released "Lugar", his first album as a composer and lyricist.


Granddaughter of a conductor and daughter of a fado singer, Marta de Sousa was born in Faro on December 31st, 1992. Whilst still in her cradle, she would accompany her parents on fado nights, being carried around by fado singers and falling asleep to the sound of the guitars.Today, she jokes saying "there was no way of escaping fado". She started singing at the age of seven, and in her teens her father encouraged her to take part in fado competitions (to gain "stage presence"), winning her first prizes.Fado stopped being so present when she moved to the capital to study at the University of Lisbon in the Faculty of Law. When she felt homesick, she would go to the Tascas and Fado Houses in Bairro Alto and Alfama to listen to fado. It was on one of these evenings that, surrounded by friends, she told them in confidence that she also sang. She sang that night and never stopped. Today, more than a decade later, she sings professionally all over the country, most notably in Lisbon's best-known Fado Houses.


With the aim of offering a diverse experience to the public, in addition to the guest fado singers' performances, spectators will also be able to enjoy typical Portuguese snacks and drinks in the theatre's gallery starting from 6pm to the sound of live music performed by local musicians with electric piano, Portuguese guitar, classical guitar, violin, saxophone, clarinet, among other instruments.At the same time, the gallery will host an exhibition on the origins and evolution of fado throughout the ages, displaying information, photographs, instruments, old newspaper cuttings and other pertinent pieces related to the history of fado, providing visitors with a better understanding of the cultural significance and artistic value of fado, classified by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
