Linda de Suza (born Teolinda Joaquina de Sousa Lança, 22 February 1948 in Beja, Portugal) is a Lusophone and Francophone singer, actress and author. She is of Portuguese origin.

Linda de Suza was born in Beringel, Beja (Alentejo), in southern Portugal on 22 February 1948. Suza left her homeland, Portugal for France in the 1970s and started to work in menial jobs.

In the late 1970s she managed to record music albums. Her works such as Tiroli-Torola, La fille qui Pleurait, Un Enfant peut faire le Monde, and L’Étrangère drew a large audience in France. She topped her success with her performance at Paris Olympia.

Linda de Suza sings fado, folk, ballads and popular songs in both French and Portuguese and was nicknamed “Amália of France” after Amália Rodrigues, to whom she paid tribute in her song “Amália”.

Amália Rodrigues, known as “Rainha do Fado” (“Queen of Fado”) paved the way for Linda de Suza, Tonicha, Lenita Gentil, Candida Branca Flor, Dulce Pontes, Mariza and Mísia, among other well known Portuguese and Portuguese-descended singers.

In 1984, Linda de Suza published her autobiography La Valise en Carton (The Cardboard Suitcase). The book was also published the same year in Portugal, as A Mala de Cartão. Her book was followed by a number of novels. La Valise en carton was adapted into a cinema-film miniseries in 1988. All were successful.
