POSTPONED – Monterey Jazz & Kuumbwa Jazz Present: Mariza at the Sunset Center
Portuguese fado vocalist Mariza has risen from a local phenomenon, known only to a small circle of admirers in Lisbon, to one of the most widely acclaimed stars of world music. It all started with her first album, Fado em Mim, released in 2001, which quickly led to a number of high-profile international concerts and ultimately earned her BBC Radio 3’s award for Best European Artist in the World Music category. No Portuguese artist since Amalia Rodrigues has experienced such a triumphant international career, with countless fans, rave reviews, and numerous awards and distinctions. Mariza has mastered the roots of her musical career and developed into a universal artist who opens herself to the world without ever losing her heartfelt sense of Portuguese identity.
