Fado Queen Mariza at Kongresowa

The great Fado singer Mariza is appearing at Warsaw’s Kongresowa Hall May 31. Quite simply, Mariza is a phenomenon whose popularity is on a par with operatic divas and rock megastars and whose voice has been defined as magic and magnetic. She has invited comparisons with the divine Amalia Rodrigues (1920-1999), the most famous fado exponent of all time. Mariza went on to conquer the world once she had gained recognition in her own country. Her recordings sell by the truckload, take out prestigious awards, and her unparalleled concert performances bolster and affirm her star status. Mariza has performed on some of the world’s foremost stages, including Carnegie Hall (New York), the Sydney Opera House, Royal Albert Hall (London), Alte Oper (Frankfurt), Theatro Grec (Barcelona), and the Moscow House of Music.

It has been a long time since the name Mariza was a jealously guarded secret among the devotees of fado, a musical genre likened to Argentinean tango and Spanish flamenco. Fado is bursting with passion, sadness, jealousy and sorrow. What sets it apart from its musical cousins is its abundance of poetry, its aura of mystery and its capacity to juxtapose adverse emotional states like unbearable pain and overwhelming joy, and the cruelty of life and intensity of love.
