Album Review
Margy Kahn
Reviewed 2019-06-06 
Another beautiful album by Mariza. She is a golden voiced fado singer originally from Mozambique and now Portugal. Fado is Portugal's soul music and hard to resist. Originally inspired by Amalia Rodrigues, Mariza has taken possession of the current fado scene world-wide. Her iconic voice and delivery recall famous chanteuses from other cultures,

NO FCC's (all Portuguese) Favorite Tracks: 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11

1 –Trigueirinha –2:39 –peppy number than moves right along ; pretty accompaniment

2-- Quem Me Dera – 4:17 – more heartfelt with strings

3-- Amor Perfeito –3:42-- upbeat but also heartfelt; lots of breath; crescendo with percussion at end

*4 –Oracao –3:13-- tenderly sung with treble strings

*5 –Sou (Rochedo) –3:30-- interesting under rhythm set against the line-by-line delivery by Mariza

*6—E Mentira – 2:57-- a boulevardier style fado, moves right along

*7—Semente Viva –3:41-- classic fado, full of yearning, angst, with echoing violin

8—Por Tanto Te Amar –4:21-- tender and quiet

9 – Nosso Tempo –4:40-- mellow and intimate

**10—Verde Limao –3:06 –African drumming and recitation starts off; Mariza's strong voice comes in over the African rhythm

*11—Quebranto—4:15-- classic fado, limpid and gorgeously sung

12—Oi Nha Mae –3:56-- rhythm picks up with this catchy number

*13—Fado Errado—3:26-- rhythmic fado in a fast andante

14—Fado Refugio-- 3:04-- more classic style

14-- Trigueirinha—2:38-- reprise of first track with alternating male and female phrases
