Concerto em Lisboa

Concerto em Lisboa is an album released on November 6, 2006 by fado singer Mariza. It was nominated in 2007 for a Latin Grammy in the category of Best Folk Album.


The album was released on both DVD and CD. Recorded in 2005, the concert took place in the gardens in front of Torre de Belém, in the neighborhood of Lisbon. Mariza was accompanied by an orchestra, Sinfonietta de Lisboa, conducted by Jaques Morelenbaum, the producer and arranger of her album, Transparente. The concert was attended by around 25.000 persons.


Concerto em Lisboa contains live interpretations of the songs from Transparente, and also from Mariza's first and second albums, re-arranged for orchestra—including "Medo", "Há uma música do Povo", "Meu Fado Meu', "Cavaleiro Monge", "Há Palavras Que Nos Beijam", and "Ó Gente Da Minha Terra".

"I lived in a traditional Lisbon neighbourhood and have always sung the fado - I know what it is, I understand myself through it." – Mariza
