Portugal

Portugal is a country on the Iberian peninsular bordering Spain and the Atlantic. It is known for Fado (a melancholic style of singing from the poor urban dwellers) and the Portuguese Guitar which is a legacy from the Moors. It is thought that the Fado style originated in Moorish songs.

There is some similarity with the Folk from Galicia such as the Bagpipes (Gaita)
