Mariza dos Reis Nunes, aka Mariza, has become one of the most popular fado stars of the 20th century, combining this traditional Portuguese folk style with the contemporary sounds of gospel, soul and jazz.

Born in Mozambique to a Portuguese father and Mozambican mother, she was brought up in Mouraria, one of the traditional fado neighbourhoods of Lisbon. While loving the pure tradition, Mariza has commissioned new fados and expanded the form in her collaborations with Spanish and Brazilian musicians.

A charismatic performer on stage and an eloquent ambassador for this much-loved Portuguese style: if you’re going to see fado, see Mariza.
