World Stage, Mariza, October 30, 2013; Corporate Sponsor: Mechanics Bank; Patron Sponsors: Anonymous


No living singer conveys the achingly beautiful, nostalgic, ecstatic music of Portuguese fado with more style and passion than superstar fadista Mariza. Dubbed "the Sade of fado" by the New York Times, Mariza is a regal and alluring presence onstage, able to make a large hall feel as intimate as a tavern, with "a voice schooled in fado's depths" (The Independent, London). Mariza refreshes classics of the genre and adds modern repertoire from Brazil, Cuba, and beyond, backed by a band that effortlessly weaves the music's African roots with contemporary styles.
