Mariza is, easily and almost cliched at this point, as good as it gets on the planet... Fado is in her blood and you feel like she's about to open a vein in live performances.

There have been negative reviews about the compatability of this CD with some MP3 players - which sadly looks like a poor review for the performance... PLEASE, if you are a Fado fanatic or just a beginner - you need this CD! The DVD is also wonderful!

I've watched both the Lisbon and the London DVDs and Mariza's passion for Portugal, Lisbon and fado come outs strong in both DVDs. However, performing next to the beautiful Tower of Belem adds authenticity to the performance that cannot be duplicated. This might be stating the obvious since the performance is in Portugal, but there is no English in this DVD, so if that is something important, one might be disappointed. I only speak English and had no issues with this. Her voice is magnificent, she is humble and charming. I adore her.

The concert CD is lovely, with Mariza soaring over a band led by Brazilian cellist Jaques Morelenbaum (known for his recent live work with Caetano Veloso...) They work through a variety of fado styles, from the weepiest love songs to giddy folk dances, each style performed with good humor and power.

The added bonus documentary film DVD is a real treat, not only for the glimpses of Mariza and other contemporary fado stars, but for its look back at the roots of the genre and its meaning to Portuguese society. Particularly interesting is its examination of fado's political and social significance -- originally the fado was type of left-wing protest song, but it was subverted in the 1930s by the dictatorship that ruled Portugal until the mid-1970s. The junta made fado music into a propaganda tool, emphasizing romantic love and family values, to the exclusion of older themes about hard work and hard times. After the dictatorship toppled, fado fell into disrepute, but regained popularity in the 1980s and '90s when a new generation cast about for a way to guard Portuguese culture from the encroachments of globalized (American) popular entertainment. A fascinating story, laced with many soulful performances.

If you like Mariza, if you like the Fado, you will love this combination. The CD is rich and pure, the DVD is wonderful, like being there. This may be the best yet Mariza , even with the applause....

This isn't what Amazon says it is. Or rather Amazon gives out conflicting info.
The 2 disc version does NOT have a DVD of the concert, but a CD of it plus a feature with Mariza on Lisbon and Fado.
If you order the one disc, you will get her live performance on DVD.
Mariza's voice.......and spirit.......is too strong to be confined. This leads to accusations that she isn't true to the genre, is affected etc.
But she could be the greatest world music performer currently. She plays everywhere; Los Angeles, Bangkok etc.
Her exotic looks make her look like a beautiful female version of Nosferatu. But she exudes nothing but life and ESPRIT, Joie de Vive, etc.
Her father is European, her mother a mulatto from Mozambique.
In all three of her DVDs she performs the most famous Fado song, also sung by the equally great Amalia Rodriguez, in the third chapter complete with her dancing.
She looks more radiant and beautiful in this performance than in her others.
The three Portuguese guitarists are divine and sublime.
The conductor of a full orchestra on some of the cuts is a cellist who solos on one song.
She is backed on some songs by a full

The CD is incredible and the DVD evocative of the fado scene in Lisbon - beautiful cinematography. And a great bargain too! 5 stars for sure.

I was introduced to Mariza on recent trip to Portugal followed by seeing her in concert in DC. She's the current Queen of Fado (which I've learned to love, even if I can't understand Portuguese) and is now expanding beyond traditional Fado (see her recent album, "Mundo") This concert is Lisbon is Mariza with her "homey's" and it's clear she loves them and they love her.

I had heard of Mariza by chance from a fellow fan of Amalia Rodrigues and rented the DVD of the Lisboa concert. That was it, I was hooked and had to have this music. Mariza is not "the new Amalia", she is Mariza, and she is a great fado singer in her own right. I have listened to nothing but this CD for the past 2 or 3 weeks...Mariza is addictive! The music is so emotional & moving and you don't have to speak Portuguese to love it. Also, the bonus CD (which is in English) has a lot of good information about the history of fado, and good ambience footage of Lisbon. An excellent buy.
