After fourteen years, Mariza returns to the Auditorium Parco della Musica Ennio Morricone on June 7, 2023 at the Rome Summer Fest 2023. From Mozambique, where she was born, to the Mouraria neighborhood of Lisbon, where she grew up, to the whole world, which has welcomed her among its most exciting voices: in a 20-year career, a passion for fado and a strong musical personality have brought the Portuguese singer to international prominence.

Thousands of fans gather for his performances, such as at the legendary concert in front of Lisbon's Belém Tower, London's Barbican Center or New York's Carnegie Hall, via Latin Grammys and appearances on the David Letterman Show.

It is his contemporary voice that embodies the circumstances of inconstant fortune, the ironies of fate, the excruciating pains of love, the crises of absence and estrangement, the deep sobs of despair, the whims of the heart, and the mournful sadness of the saudade of a people, of a belonging, of an art like fado.

With a career that echoes the success of her compatriot muse Amália Rodrigues, in two decades Mariza has collected platinum records and brought traditional Portuguese song to the world's most important venues, from the Sydney Opera House to Barcelona's Palau de la Música.
