The flood of contemporary, young fado singers is unstoppable. AndMariza - with her striking hairdo - is one of those on the move. In2001, her debut album Fado Em Mim was released and she subsequentlyreceived a prize from the BBC. In the albums that followed, Marizachose for an honest and traditional setting. Fado with a twist,that's how you could translate the title of her second album FadoCurvo. Music that sticks closely to tradition (the presence ofAmalia Rodriguez can still be felt) while on the other hand itcontains all kinds of contemporary elements. Mariza now has a longseries of CDs to her name, the most recent of which is entitledTerra. She remains firmly rooted in tradition but is weaving evermore new components into her music, with great feeling andsubtlety. A continuing quest for balance without Mariza everdenying her roots; that's her music.
