Madragoa is the world’s first house of Fado and Mandó.

The Fado is the iconic music genre of Portugal. It comprises one vocalist accompanied by the guitarra portuguesa (Portuguese guitar) and the viola do Fado (Fado guitar). On 27th November 2011, Fado was added to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.

The Mandó is, similarly, the iconic musical genre of Goa. It is generally a group performance with violin and ghumot accompaniment as well as dance.

At Madragoa, you experience the Fado and the Mandó with many creative variations in the singing and playing. The introduction of the Portuguese guitar, and the solo and duet singing of the Mandó are two innovations at Madragoa.

Besides, during the short intermission, you get to savour Indo-Portuguese delicacies served with love and care.

The ambience at Madragoa is something you will treasure for a long time to come. The concert room, accommodating 40 seats in a cozy atmosphere, sports a floor-to-ceiling multi-hued panel depicting a mix of Panjim, Lisbon and Coimbra. An artist’s dream!
