Mariza transcends her own name, she is a latent memory of emotions, she is an ambassador in her own right of a country that continues to admire her, that proudly assumes her as part of us and that continues and will always continue to applaud every note, every song and every concert.
In recent years, Mariza’s internationalization has opened up new musical horizons, transforming her into one of the most complete and respected artists in the world.
In 2023, Mariza presents her new record work, the celebration of a career spanning more than two decades, winking at her future.
“Mariza is a dazzling, captivating force to behold..”
“The world-class Portuguese fado singer transcended language barriers with her emotive, spell-binding performance at the Royal Albert Hall.”
Mariza’s fado was a life-affirming force..”
“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 21st-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.”
