Fiona's Comments

Obrigada Maria, a voice with globally recognised sentiments. Sooth jazz, with a touch of harmonica.

About the Album

This is one of Maria Mendes' favorite songs and the only sung in Portuguese. The inventive sound of this album is driven by Maria's tender and unique singing together with the truly moving sound of Wim Dijkgraaf's harmonica. The Portuguese singer Maria Mendes, based in The Netherlands since 2007 and runner-up of the famous Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal competition sings melancholic and romantic stories combined with a passion for jazz and improvisation.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
