This is the second in our two-part series on the music of Portugal. Host Bob Boilen travels to Lisbon, the home of Fado, the yearning, languid music from the south of Portugal. Boilen speaks with DJ Henrique Amaro about the origins of Fado and how it's crept into the country's electronica and hip-hop. We also discover the flashpoint that music played in the country's 1974 revolution.
