Fado de Coimbra

Fado is a Portuguese music style, the most internationally famous type being that sung in and  around Lisbon, the type sung by the late Amália Rodrigues and today’s Mariza.  There are other styles of fado, however, including that from the city of Coimbra, which is home to Portugal’s oldest university, the Universidade de Coimbra. The following video is an example of fado from Coimbra performed by university students, and it is really fun! I hope that you like it.
