Mariza

Fado singer brings her passionate music to Houston

Fado, a style of music from Portugal, counts Mariza as one of its brightest stars. “Fado” means “fate,” and the music is dramatic and melancholy, like torch songs. Mariza, with her soaring, powerful voice, circles the globe bringing her passionate music to an ever--growing audience. Although fado most often deals with longing and loss, the -Mozambique-born Mariza says, “When you finish your fado, when you finish the poem, you have been cleaning your soul, and everybody’s like, ‘That’s good,’ and we laugh, we don’t cry.” 8 p.m. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-227-4SPA. $17 to $47.
Fri., Oct. 19, 8 p.m., 2007
