The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia (UBC) announces the return of Portuguese-Mozambican artist, Mariza, the living voice of fado on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at 8pm in the Chan Shun Concert Hall. Mariza will share contemporary fado, a vibrant musical travelogue that journeys from Cape Verde to Spain, and from Argentina to Portugal.
Mariza grew up listening to and singing fado music in the streets and tavernas of her native Lisbon. With a strong musical background in gospel, soul, and jazz, it was Mariza’s father who encouraged her to emphasize the traditional music of Portugal in her repertoire. In 1999, following the death of fado’s most beloved interpreter, Amalia Rodrigues, Mariza performed a broadcast tribute that soon led to the release of her first fado album in 2001, the acclaimed, Fado em Mim.
A pair of tickets to Mariza at the Chan Centre on November 2, 2016 – 8pm.
