Fado icon Mariza is returning to the United States and Canada for an extensive North American tour this spring. She will be performing songs from her latest album, “Mariza,” inviting listeners into the intensity and intimacy of fado.

For me, the most important part of my work is to make good music,” says Mariza. “And for that, I look for good producers, musicians, composers and lyricists,” she remarks. “The transparency of my music means I sing my own truth.”

The self-titled seventh album, Mariza, highlights new facets to her voice and her creativity, tackling songs that speak to the nuance of experience. “After almost 20 years of recording, my voice gained some maturity with all the songs that I sung so far,” says Mariza. “On this record, the lyrics I chose are also very mature. They convey histories of life, emotions from the soul.”

She also wrote her own lyrics. “For the first time I was able to sing a lyric written by me. It’s about an impossible love story,” she explains. “I discovered over the years that we all look for love. In many shapes and forms, that’s the truth, the truth of life for all human beings.
