On the 23rd of November the charismatic Portuguese fado singer Mariza will perform at the Madeira Technopolo in a joint concert with the Classical Orchestra of Madeira.

MarizaMariza Reus Nunes, born in Mozambique but with the soul moulded in Mouraria, has achieved successes with performances in Central Park in New York, in the Centro Cultural de Belém, at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, in the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris in House of Music in Moscow, in the Walt Disney Concert Hall, among other stages in successive tours in Europe and North America.

The fado thrives on sorrow, and anybody brave enough to sing it must possess saudade, a Portuguese term meaning “longing.” But more importantly, the singer must genuinely expose his/her soul … and Mariza has proven that she has a plentiful supply of saudade, never failing to captivate audiences on her worldwide tours.
