Portugal is a seafaring nation. Fado is the music of “saudade”, the terrible longing that sailors and their loved ones feel when they are far away from each other. Portuguese speakers say the full meaning of the word cannot be translated, but if you are far from home, you know what it means. Fado is medicine for saudade.
