Best contemporary fado singer since the queen of the fado Amalia Rodrigues.

The Portuguese have a phrase, "saudade," for which an accurate translation does not exist in English. The Hebrew word "ergah" comes close... it is an expression rich in connotation, heavily infused with emotion. It implies yearning, an overwhelming desire; it connotes a gaping hole in one's soul grasping for fulfillment in an all-too-often empty cosmos. Fado, a music that is for the Portuguese what Jazz is for the South, what Flamenco is for Spain, and what the Tango is for Argentina, is wound around the complexities and delicate intricacies of "saudade." Meaning "fate," Fado is the ultimate form of expression, where poem is sung to music that is eerily poetic in and of itself. As such, "Fado em Mim" is the ultimate aural experience. From the energetic "Oiça lá Ó Senhor Vinho" to the haunting "Barco Negro," this CD is an amazing expression of soul that cannot be truly explained - it must be felt. Hailed as the next Amalia Rodriguez, the greatest of the Portuguese Fadistas, Mariza has an incredible range and limitless talent. Yet she presents a unique style of fado, reflecting the influences of jazz and blues. Indeed, Mariza is perhaps the new face of fado, a breath of life into the genre. As a bonus, the poignant "O Gente de Minha Terra" is offered as a hidden track, remixed with a beautiful piano score. Bottom line: Mariza's music carries the unique potency expected from such a soulful form of expression, yet it contains a refreshing degree of individuality that puts it into a class of its own.

In my jaded musical life, it's been a lifetime since my soul has been moved by such depth of musical talent as Mariza's and such exquisite musical arrangements and performances as those found in this collection. Each instrument is allowed to contribute it's unique voice, yet none overpowers the other, nor do the musicians compete with the awesome diva's rich, evocative vocal style. This was my introduction to fado and inspired my visit to Portugal to find out for myself more about the country which gave birth to this dramatic and profound form of musical expression. Muito obrigada Mariza! for Fado em Mim!
