Fabio Machado was born in Funchal, Portugal and started studying mandolin at the age of 9 years. He joined the Madeira Mandolin Orchestra (Recreio Musical União da Mocidade) and became its Concertmaster for several years, performing in several venues as a soloist.

In 1998 he toured central and northern Portugal, performing in Águeda, Vila do Conde, Benavente, Santarém and Expo 98.
