Her first North American tour in four years opens tomorrow night at George Mason University’s Center for the Arts in Fairfax at 8 p.m. Best-known for her mastery of fado, the soul music of Portugal, the Latin Grammy Award-nominated songstress will also sing in English and Spanish alongside her quartet.
