"Vibrant and alive, she's re-making fado's ancient sadness into a majestic modern sound" -- Rolling Stone
In just a few short years, Mariza has established herself as the new face of Portuguese fado, seducing audiences worldwide with her breathtaking voice, charismatic stage presence, and powerful blend of traditional and contemporary song forms. Mariza is a Mozambican whose soul was forged in the old Mouraria district of Lisbon - and it was there that she first heard fado singers. Her latest CD Transparente has been released in more than 35 countries around the world. In Portugal, the recording immediately shot to Number One and won the Portuguese Golden Globe Award for "Best Interpreter of the Year." Learn more about Mariza on her Web site at www.mariza.com
