The renowned Fado diva Mariza has announced a new gig in Romania, on March 7, 2020. The show is due at Sala Palatului in Bucharest, from 7 p.m.
Mariza, dubbed as the New Fado Queen, is thus returning to Romania, a country dear to her heart.
“It’s extraordinary! Since I have come to Romania the first time I have kept on trying to explain that! Then, I noticed we have so much in common, not only the feeling of DOR (e.n. the well known Romanian word for longing), but also our languages have so much in common, your lifestyle is similar to the Portuguese one. So, as I walked down the streets to feel Bucharest’s beat, I thought: I could say I am Lisbon! I could live very well and naturally here, I felt like home!,” Mariza told an interview to Radiotopic.
Born on December 16, 1973 in Mozambique and raised in Portugal, Mariza has received numerous awards and won the BBC prize for “the Best European Artist”. She also has multiple nominations for the Grammy Awards.
