My lovely mum introduced me to a Portugese singer today. In all her sweetness she told me she watched this beautiful Portugese woman with very short blond hair sing on a tv show with a voice like fresh water, however she could not remember her name. While talking to her, a quick search on the oh-so-magical internet revealed that the singer was Mariza who is a masterful fado singer. Not only did I learn about this singer from my mum, today, but I also learned what fado style music is. For those of you who are too lazy to click on the link - fado is the traditional urban folk music of Portugal.
Thank you, mum!
