World of Mouth: Mariza and more
Charlie Gillett, The WOMEX Guide, October 2002
WHEN MARIZA SINGS, time stands still. Every word is sung with intense concentration, every note hit flawlessly. When she pauses for dramatic effect, the silence is never marred by premature applause from an inattentive listener, thinking this must be the end of the song. We are all with her, all caught in her trap.
