For more than two centuries, the folk style of Fado has been synonymous with its home of Portugal, and in the last hundred years, it has been epitomized by just two singers: Amália Rodrigues, who commanded the Fado stage for more than six decades, and Mariza, who has reinvigorated the genre for the twenty-first century. To mark the centenary of the late “Queen of Fado,” Mariza shares a streaming concert from her home of Lisbon, Portugal, featuring the songs that defined Amália’s career and nearly a century of the genre.
