Fado (ˈfɑːdu): A musical style that emerged from oral traditions in 19th-century Portugal, combining poetry and music.
International sensation Mariza returns to Memorial Hall with her bewitching renditions of fado—the haunting torch songs of old Portugal rooted in folk poetry, Arabic cadences and African and Brazilian rhythms. With her majestic beauty, impassioned performances and dramatic stage presence, she is a reigning diva in world music, bringing a thrilling contemporary edge to fado’s ancient sound. The first Portuguese musician to be nominated for a Grammy Award, her multi-platinum recordings infuse the timeless melodies of her homeland with her signature style, winning legions of fans across the globe.
