Hailing from Portugal, Mariza is the Voice of “Fado”–the traditional style of Portuguese music. With more than one million records sold worldwide, this three-time, Grammy-nominated artist’s voice leaves no one unresponsive and has made Mariza one of the most widely acclaimed singers in modern world music.
“Fado is the traditional music of Portugal -- proud, austere and deeply melancholic. Mariza is the music’s biggest star for a reason: She sings it not as musty nostalgia but as exuberant twenty-first-century pop, with a low, mesmerizing alto that’s as commanding as any pop singer today...remaking fado’s ancient sadness into a majestic modern sound.” – Rolling Stone
