Abstract

This article explores the intersection between music and two distinct but interrelated urban phenomena—urban regeneration and touristification—as they have transformed the physical and sensory environment of one of Lisbon’s emblematic historic neighbourhoods, the Mouraria. I focus on the role of music in the urban regeneration and marketing of this neighbourhood. In particular I examine the restitution of the sonority of fado to the Mouraria’s public and semi-public spaces, as a case study that illustrates the ambiguous role that heritage plays in urban redevelopment both as a tourist attraction and as a means to foster a local sense of community and belonging.
