Of the crop of singers who have breathed new life into fado, the traditional Portuguese song form, none has risen so fast as Mariza. Considered throughout the world to be the reigning ambassador of Portuguese fado, Mariza has been seducing audiences globally with her awesome singing, charismatic stage presence, and powerful blend of traditional and contemporary songs. "Mariza has it all—charisma, a voice to die for, and stunning looks... destined to become one of the world's great divas," says The New York Times. Funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the American Masterpieces initiative, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
