Portuguese Fado singer Mariza will be performing at Town Hall in New York City on Saturday, October 15 at 8 pm and at NJPAC in Newark on Sunday, October 16 at 7 pm.
Mariza’s performance at NJPAC where she has performed previously features special guest Brazilian singer Bebel Gilberto.
The new face of fado, Mariza has not only revitalized what once seemed a dimming tradition but did so while bringing it to new audiences. She will be presenting her new Latin Grammy-nominated recording Mundo (World) which includes classics honoring the late fado legend Amália Rodrigues and iconic tango singer Carlos Gardel, and new songs written for her by the Grammy-winning Spanish producer Javier Limón.
