My next Fado discovery was the great Fadista, Marisa da Luz, in Braga, Portugal.
At Mercado das Tapas, various Fadistas perform, but when we went last year we were fortunate to hear Marisa da Luz. We liked her so much that, when we knew we were going again early this month, we requested her. There are many things that make her such a good Fadista: To begin with, she has a beautiful voice with quite a range. But she also pours such feeling into her songs, they wring your heart.
|Elegant and dramatic|
|The humorous one.|
|The woman behind me on your|
right is one of the owners.
|She gave us champagne!|
|A wonderful group of people as |
you can see.
|I was really honored.|
Thank you, Marisa da Luz, for an inspiring evening full of wonderful song.
Next week: Some of our favorite places in Braga, and a wonderful tour guide.
Meanwhile, what is your favorite music to listen to? Have you heard Fado? If so, do you like it?
