Playing with intense precision, emotion and grace, Marta Pereira da Costa is the world’s first and only female professional Portuguese guitar player. Specializing in fado, the soulful music from her native country, Marta and her trio will entertain audiences with an international blend of melodies and rhythms.

 

Marta started playing the piano at the age of 4 and later learned the classical guitar. When she turned 18, she began to study the Portuguese guitar earnestly. In 2012, Marta recorded on the “Fados de Amor” album, which was the first album where the Portuguese Guitar is solely played by a woman. It was awarded “Best Fado Album of 2012” by the prestigious Amália Rodrigues Foundation. It was at that time that Marta decided to abandon her work as a civil engineer in order to pursue her professional career in music.

 

Fans spanning the globe agree that when Marta performs, she delivers what cannot be recorded: the heart of a woman who made the guitar an extension of her alma (soul).

 

A richly chiming Lincoln Center debut by Fado guitarist Marta Pereira da Costa. She’s funny, and kind of badass: she knew she owned the crowd, and she didn’t try to hide it. In the world of fado, she’s a rarity, as a woman instrumentalist, composer and bandleader – New York Music Daily, USA (2019)
