Music Mondays

Here at O Dinis, we pride ourselves on having “Music Mondays” that are always a lot of fun with live music and, of course, amazing food.  We are excited to have you and your family join our O Dinis family to sing and dance with the most traditional Portuguese singers, which will make you feel like you have never left Portugal.

 
Stay tuned on our Facebook Events for Music Monday dates and special singers.
 
“Music Mondays” at O Dinis Restaurant in East Providence, Rhode Island features mainly traditional Portuguese singers and musicians that play a variety of “musica popular” and Fado music.
 
Fado music is a form of Portuguese singing that is often associated with pubs, cafés, and restaurants.  Fado can be described by using the Portuguese word “saudade,” which means “longing” and stands for a feeling of loss.

The singer of fado (literally, “fate”) speaks to the often harsh realities of everyday life, sometimes with a sense of resignation, sometimes with the hope of resolution.

Fado is a music genre that can be traced back to the 1820’s in Lisbon and could have even earlier origins.  It is said that the first famous Fado singer was Maria Severa, still in the 19th century. She was a local prostitute from Mouraria with an amazing voice, who had an affair with a count and became famous after that. The twentieth century saw the appearance of great fado singers, with very diverse styles.
