Mariana Moreira is an ambassador for the soul of Portuguese music, Fado, in Scotland. She has rapidly gained a loyal following for her soulful Fado performances and is considered by many as the embodiment of the Portuguese emotion 'saudade'.
Mariana will be joined by Ben MacDonald, an award winning guitarist and composer based in Glasgow, Scotland. Although primarily a Jazz guitarist; the eclectic influences are apparent in his playing, borrowing techniques and harmony from Flamenco, Folk and World Music to fuel an improvisatory style.
Mariana and Ben will bring you an evening of World music where Fado and Jazz will blend, a musical experience you will not easily forget.
