Mariza has a new CD and tour…

Portugal’s voice of fado was born in Mozambique and grew up in her family’s fado house… singing songs at such a young age that her father drew pictures so that Mariza could understand the intense emotions conveyed with fado… sadness, longing, the pain of love, the agony of love lost.

“Fado” means fate, and little did anyone know at the time that Mariza’s was to bring the national treasure of Portugal to the world’s ears. She is the reigning Queen of Fado… with multiple Grammy nominations, a BBC World Music Awards honoree as Best European Act, and a new album and extensive North American tour. See the end of this message for the dates and locations.
