    Amália Rodrigues was considered by many the best Fado singer of all time. This past November Fado was considered UNESCO’s World Heritage Cultural Patrimony.

    Fado is a Portuguese type of song, which the main subject is usually "Saudade" (the feeling of missing someone or something), painful love, wonderful gone youth and the love for a lost country (either for immigration or for politics...)

    For those who have never heard it, this is the perfect chance. Here is a song by the most famous Fado singer, Amália Rodrigues, called "Zanguei-me com o meu amor" [loosely translated by 'Argued with my Love']
