The 7th edition of the festival that is organized on the name of internationally acclaimed flutist named as “the Magic Flute” is being held between the 2nd and 20th of December 2016 in Istanbul and Ankara
On 16th of December at the Yenimahalle Nazım Hikmet Cultural Center, Ankara, Portugal’s acclaimed “Fado” singer, winner of the 2014 Fado contest, Margarida and her ensemble take the stage with a stunning program.
Brilliantly mixing the sensational Fado style with authentic folkloric music,the vibrant musicians bring excitement, panache and skill to this memorable evening.
In Portuguese, “Fado” means “destiny” and it expresses “longing”.
While Classical Guitar marks the beat and balance of each song, Portuguese Guitar dialogues constantly with the voice, reinforcing the feelings expressed in it. In this concert they are played respectively by Daniel Paredes, a young but talented musician with strong classic formation and Artur Caldeira, experienced musician that already accompanied and recorded with some of the most important names of the Fado, but also with a notable career in classical music and teaching.
Sefika Kutluer will perform 2 Fado songs with her sentimantal flute as the surprise of this concert.
We’d like to extend our gratitude to the Municipality of Yenimahalle for providing the venue and to the Portugal Embassy and Institute Camoes for their contributions.
