About midway between Boston and mainland Portugal sits the Azores, a collection of nine islands scattered over several hundred nautical miles. The closest point to Europe from the United States, the Azores is an autonomous region of Portugal, and just four hours by plane from Boston.
The famous portuguese singer, Antonio Zambujo, is giving a special azorean tour. On May, he will be performing with his guitar through all the islands to bring a taste of fado for the Atlantic.
