Mariza In USA
The critically-lauded Portugal-based fado singer Mariza starts her US tour tomorrow in LA. She'll end her month long tour with a show in New York City on May 1st to play Town Hall. Born in Mozambique, the Portugal-based artist adds a touch of Africa into her musical mix. Fado is a folk music genre that can be traced to Lisbon, Portugal around the 1820s. Generally it's a style of Portuguese singing that is done in cafés and restaurants. Mariza's 7th album -- Mariza -- was recently released. Below is a track from the stunning new effort.
