Songs of Longing and Fate from Mariza

Mariza is a huge star in Portugal singing fado, a kind of Portuguese blues. Fado means fate, and the songs are full of longing and melancholy but are never heavy. When Mariza sings in her luscious voice, we can acknowledge our mortality and insignificance yet still find happiness in the beauty of the song.  Details for her show at Stanford's Bing Hall can be found here. For her shows at SFJAZZ, details here.
