  • Savannah Music Festival: Mariza Live

    Airs Thursday, July 17 at 8 p.m. Afro-Portuguese fado sensation Mariza put on what many are calling the "concert of the year" at the Savannah Music Festival. Tune in for a program featuring her Georgia debut. Fado, which translated means "destiny" or "fate," is a musical genre that can be traced from the 1820s in Portugal, but probably with much earlier origins. In popular belief, fado is a form of music characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics. The music is usually linked to the Portuguese word "saudade," which has no match in English but could be understood as nostalgia felt while missing someone. The origins of fado are a mixture of African slave rhythms, the traditions of Portuguese sailors, and the influence of Arabic music. Join us for a captivating performance given by Mariza, the genre's biggest star, at the Lucas Theatre for the Arts during the Savannah Music Festival.
