Album Review

Though she's undoubtedly resigned to nearly eternal comparisons with Amalia Rodrigues, the master of Portugal's fado, Mariza's debut album finds her breaking out of the mold from the beginning. Newcomers to the fado will quickly become familiar with the style from the plaintive crystal of Mariza's voice and her evocative guitar accompaniment, but her delivery occasionally recalls jazz or the blues. Double bassist Ricardo Cruz and pianist Tiago Machado help carry the effervescent "Poetas," while light percussion adds a note of intrigue on the closer, "Barco Negro."

Twins??? in voice speaking

I was so confused when I heard Mariza voice, I thought I was still listening to Amalia Rodigues, wow, a new fresh voice, but with all the experience of the past artists, I am in love with this artist, being born in Portugal yet raised in the United States, I'm falling in love with this type of music. Amalia Rodrigues was the type of music my parents listened too, but I am falling in the same foot steps yet with a younger artist. Congratulations to the world, for having a brite and fresh artist!!!

Outstanding... Every song!

Outstanding! Every song! Don't speak Portuguese, but great combo of music and lyrics!

Par excellence. . .

Mariza's first album accentuates her unique style, superlative voice and fantastic control and really evokes the haunting qualities of the fado. Mariza is the new Amalia, an exemplar of the fado and witha voice that few people in any genre can match. This should be a cornerstone of any serious music collection. Do see her in concert if you can.

Mariza's knowledge of jazz and blues helped her make one of the most interesting European folk records in the new millennium. The album, produced by Jorge Fernando,...
