Meet a Lisbon-Based Artist Who Performs to Audiences Around the Globe
In just 12 years, Mariza has transformed from a hidden treasure in Lisbon to one of the most widely acclaimed international musicians. Her sound mixes Cape Verdean mornas, Brazilian, and R&B classics, without losing sight of her Fado roots. Having won countless international awards and being recognized across the globe, Mariza is finally embarking on another U.S. tour. Make plans now to see Mariza live at Wortham Theater Center on Sunday, May 5th!
Some artists speak across languages, defying the boundaries of style. Mariza is one of them, transforming Portugal’s beloved, bittersweet fado into pure artistry and distilled human emotion. Her remarkable skill and presence have led her to command performances around the world, in some of its most prestigious concert halls. Yet this fame never stopped Mariza from continuing to push herself, as an artist, performer, torchbearer, and mentor to a new generation of striking artists.
Now, the fado icon is returning to the U.S. and Canada for an extensive North American tour this spring. She will be performing pieces from her latest album, Mariza, inviting listeners to experience the intensity and intimacy of fado.
"[Mariza’s] voice is a gorgeous, evocative instrument, and she sings with bravura and power. …[H]er performance is nothing short of a genuine revelation." — Billboard
Mariza will perform at Wortham Theater Center. Wortham is home to Houston Ballet and Houston Grand Opera. Since its opening in 1987, Wortham has entertained more than 8 million people.
