“[The] diva of world music.” —The Guardian
- Mariza – vocals
- Jose Neto – Portuguese guitar
- Pedro Joia – acoustic guitar
- Nando Araujo – acoustic bass
- Vicky Marque – percussion
Of both Portuguese and African descent, Mariza has come to be known as the embodiment of modern “Fado,” Lisbon’s emotion-filled folk music. Her soulful voice expresses the essence of this melancholy art form, a song style dating back to the 19th century and imbued with themes of longing, separation and reconnection. Mariza reinterprets the classical style of “Fado Tradicional” also adding her own modern signature for an updated sound. She and her acoustic ensemble convey pure emotion in their tales of the Portuguese sea and sun.
