Traditional Musical Instruments

Viola de Arame

Played with instruments like the viola de arame, rajão, braguinha and brinquinho, traditional Madeiran music has been influenced by many cultures.

Some of the typical musical genres of the region are the famous bailinho, the charamba, the chamarrita, mouriscas, and of course the amusing despique singing challenges.

banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
