Proms 9: Mariza Sings Fado
Make a date with destiny at this Proms celebration of fado, the musical soul of Portugal. Fado literally means ‘fate’ and the genre’s keening melodies are charged with passion, longing and despair.
Tonight we’ll hear Mariza, one of the tradition’s greatest living exponents, together with her band and London Contemporary Orchestra. Their Proms debut features favourite songs from her 20-year career as well as a glimpse of her forthcoming album.
