RICHMOND, Va - Explore the beauty of fado music with two performances by Fado Nosso. The quartet is accompanied by dancers from Claves Unidos to give us a sneak peek into the upcoming show, 'Amalia,' a unique theatrical collaboration that weaves together evocative movement and the soulful longing of beloved melodies of Portugal and Brazil. Fado Nosso creates their unique sound by respecting fado traditions but also containing influences indigenous to the players of classical, flamenco, Brazilian, and jazz music. You can see 'Amalia' on Saturday, March 21st at 7:30pm and Sunday, March 22nd at 5pm at Dogtown Dance Theatre. For more information visit www.clavesunidos.com.
