Mariza

Portugal


When the music pours out of her,
Mariza seems like a conduit for something much larger than herself.

There’s an unmistakably genuine agony and ecstasy of expression when she performs,
whether the venue is the Hollywood Bowl
or a small casa de fado in her hometown of Lisbon.

Fado is Portugal’s Blues or Rebetika or Tango or Flamenco.
“They all stand on emotions,” says Mariza.

“Fado is an emotional kind of music full of passion,
sorrow, jealousy, grief, and often satire.”
