Mariza – Transparente

Mozambique-born singer Mariza with dancer Patrick de Bana performing to African rhythms in FADOS, a film by Carlos Saura. The song is a tribute to her African grandmother. Her 2005 album, Transparente (Amazon), was recorded in Brazil and produced by Brazilian cellist Jacques Morelenbaum.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this video.

  1. Thank you soooooooooooo much for sharing this gorgeous video! I watched it on “repeat one” and was mesmerized each time! LOVED IT!!!! Thank you!

  2. Adorable. I love Mariza. This is nice for Fado– it’s more upbeat and happier, but I still find her voice to be filled with those lovely bittersweet saudades.
