Lisboa/Lisbon, Portugal *RERUN
Lisboa/Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and is known as the City of Seven Hills. During the Age of Discovery many Portuguese global expeditions embarked on their journeys from here. It was around that time that the traditional music "fado," which means fate in Portuguese, was born in Lisboa. Sung with "saudade," a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for someone or something absent, "fado" was first performed as a diversion in the bars and on the streets where it gained popularity with the masses.
