The Author has made no secret of his affection for worldbeat music. That subject is a major focus of this blog. On occasion, a worldbeat superstar comes to Portland or Medford, Oregon and we pack up and head out to a concert. A favorite venue is the Schnitzer Center for the Performing Arts in Portland, where we are scheduled to hear the international diva of Fado, Mariza. Anticipatory excitement is increasing daily as we wait for the appointed April evening to arrive. Fado was the subject of one of Pop Impulse's first few posts. Read it for background. A more recent post, here, extols the virtues of Lisbon (Lisboa) and its Fado Clubs.
