Mariza’s Mundo album reached double platinum for sales over 30.000 units. She also boasts an award for “Best Artist” by the prestigious Songlines Magazine in London and few weeks after Mundo’s nomination for the Latin Grammys.
Mariza was born to a Portuguese father and a mother of partial African heritage. While very young she began singing in a wide variety of musical styles, including gospel, soul and jazz. Her father strongly encouraged her to adopt fado; he felt that participating in the traditional music would grant her greater acceptance in the Portuguese community. Mariza has sold over 1,000,000 records worldwide and performed an impressive number of concerts.
In 2004, the singer is awarded the prize of the Foreign Journalists Association in Portugal, but also the European Border Breakers Award. During the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004, Mariza sang “A Thousand Years” in duet with Sting.
The first time Mariza performed in Romania was in November 2016, you can find the review here.
