Rodrigues’ axe-sharp voice has been described as “one of the world’s most enchanting voices” by the San Francisco Weekly and the New York Post stated that “(She) has become the new star of world music with her almost-celestial soprano.” Rodrigues is slated to tour this fall with dates to be announced.

Her recent visits to Expo ’98 in Lisbon and New York City left these audiences equally amazed at the power and beauty of her voice.
