"The chanteuse and her band evince a warm, generous rapport, and each of the five musicians had opportunity to demonstrate his instrument's contribution to the intriguing mix of earthy sensuality and baroque precision that constitute Mariza's brand of fado." ~ The Los Angeles Times
This fado icon has firmly established herself as an international diva, enchanting audiences across the globe. The Portuguese-Mozambican Mariza brings fado music from the tavernas of her native Lisbon to the stage of the Jack Singer Concert Hall for an unforgettable and moving performance.
Listeners will be drawn in by her vibrant and sublime voice as she shares tales of longing, destiny and sorrow – the themes of which fado is comprised. As a brilliant live performer, Mariza merges traditional and contemporary songs with charismatic stage presence, mesmerizing audiences and bringing them near tears.
