One of world music’s most widely acclaimed stars, Mariza returns to Meany Hall with her bewitching renditions of fado—the haunting torch songs of old Portugal. “When Mariza sings, time stands still. Every word is sung with intense concentration, every note hit flawlessly. When she pauses for dramatic effect, we are all with her, caught in her trap.” (BBC Radio 3). With multiple platinum-selling albums to her name, Mariza pays deep respect to fado traditions while taking the sublimely beautiful folk music in intriguing new directions.
