Portugal’s brightest star returns to Vancouver. Fado sensation Mariza, an immensely gifted vocalist who honed her talent in the tavernas of Lisbon’s Mouraria neighbourhood, brings her gorgeous voice and commanding presence back to the Chan Centre stage. Ever-inspired by legendary Portuguese fadistas such as Amália Rodrigues, and leading a new wave of notable female artists who are reinvigorating the genre, Mariza honours the traditions of her art form while still pushing musical boundaries in fresh and inspired ways.

With an eponymous album just released in the fall of 2018, Mariza is set to showcase brand new material on this hotly anticipated tour. Her seventh recording, produced once again by close collaborator and industry legend Javier Limón, returns to the roots of fado and all the saudade that implies. Featuring a more mature sound, which Songlines describes as “crossing the purity of Joan Baez with the emotional heft of Edith Piaf,” expect a performance that roams freely between joy, nostalgia, and melancholy—a passionate portrayal made even more memorable in the intimate acoustics of the Chan Shun Concert Hall.

"When we talk about fado, the one thing I don't want is to put it in a kind of museum. It needs to grow, it needs to walk further."
