Portugal's MARO - WIDE

MARO

Saudade, Saudade

It wasn't until she turned 19 that MARO realised she wanted to pursue music full time.

Graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2017, the songstress made the tough decision to move to Los Angeles instead of going home to Portugal.

In her first year in LA, the artist released six self-written and self-produced albums. During this time, her Instagram caught the eye of Grammy winner, Jacob Collier, who invited her to join his debut touring band as a featured vocalist and instrumentalist.

MARO has supported Jessie J, Fatai, ¿Téo?, and is currently opening for Charlotte Cardin’s European tour.

In Turin, the artist will be joined on stage by five backing singers. For her participation, she's invited Beatriz Fonseca, Beatriz Pessoa and Carolina Leite (that performed with her in the Portuguese national final) and adds two new names to her crew; Diana Castro and Milhanas (who were the interpreters of two songs on Festival da Canção 2022 Grand Final).

Lyrics of Saudade, Saudade

I‘ve tried to write a million other songs but Somehow I can‘t move on, oh you‘re gone Takes time, alright, and I know it‘s no one‘s fault, but Somehow I can‘t move on, oh you‘re gone Saudade, saudade Nothing more that I can say says it in a better way Saudade, saudade Nothing more that I can say says it in a better way Tem tanto que trago comigo, foi sempre o meu porto de abrigo E agora nada faz sentido, perdi o meu melhor amigo E se não for demais, peço por sinais Resta uma só palavra Saudade, saudade Nothing more that I can say says it in a better way Saudade, saudade Nothing more that I can say says it in a better way Nothing more that I can say says it in a better way I‘ve tried, alright, but it‘s killing me inside Thought you‘d be by my side always
