Mariza was born in Mozambique of Portuguese father and Mozambican mother, grew up in Lisbon’s traditional fado neighborhood, Mouraria. At only twelve years of age Mariza went from being a locally recognized ability, to becoming an internationally recognized representative of the Portuguese music, and she is also behind the campaign that got fado recognized as a cultural World Heritage Site by UNESCO, in 2011.
