BD&P World Music Series – Mariza


Where: EPCOR Centre - Jack Singer Concert Hall

Mariza, a popular Fado singer, who was raised in Portugal and began singing at a very young age in a variety of styles including jazz, gospel and soul. Mariza has firmly established herself as an international diva, enchanting audiences across the globe. Having sold over 1 million albums worldwide, Mariza has performed in such venues as New York's Carnegie Hall and Central Park, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Hollywood Bowl, London's Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House and the National Concert Hall in Dublin. 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.

As described by the LA Times “The Portuguese-Mozambican chanteuse and her stellar five-piece backing band elevate the fado music of the streets of her native Lisbon into an art form.”
