Portuguese Guitar Master
António Chaínho (Portuguese guitar master)
Some consider me an international ambassador of the Portuguese guitar. The truth is that I have been privileged to accompany some of the most remarkable interpreters of fado in Portugal. And even though I have traveled all over the world, I have never found a light as beautiful as that of Lisbon.
I consider it essential to visit a city so full of history, with people so warm and so many beautiful places to see. Here I admire the meeting of cultures that is part of the city. In my area, I highlight the essential contribution of the Museum of Fado and Guitar, to promote and highlight the improvement of the cultural offering in the city and to get to know better the history and art that occupy me day and night. Above all, wandering around Lisbon, while listening to the album “Guitarra Portuguesa”, is a unique experience that everyone should try.
