Teofilo Chantre sings to his native Cape Verde on Terra & Cretcheu, translated as ''Land and My Sweetheart.'' His mellifluous voice floats over and through the melodic and rhythmic mix of Cape Verdean coladeira, Brazilian samba, and mambo. He has written all the words and music for this album except for one track. The production of the album was in the hands of the very able Paulino Vieira, a mainstay of the Cape Verdean music scene. Terra & Cretcheu keep the tempos changing from coladeiras, a C

The islands of Cape Verde present a unique historical and cultural situation. Uninhabited until the 1400's, these islands were populated at first by Portuguese traders and farm owners, and then later by slaves from Africa as the Portuguese attempted to make a profit on these volcanic rocks that refused to be commercially farmed. During the 17th century, many of the Africans escaped to the hills where they held onto both ancient African customs and some of the Portuguese culture. It is in this se

15 songs With her haunting singing style--a zesty Luso-African mélange of Bessie Smith and Billie Holliday--the Cape Verdean singer Cesaria Evora put the moving and melancholy musical genre called morna on the map with her critically acclaimed recordings Miss Perfumado and Cafe Atlantico. São Vicente is named for Evora's island homeland and is augmented with percussion, rhythm section, strings, and horns. Evora's songs of love and longing range from the classy midtempo strains of ''São Vicent

Nha Mundo (Music Of Cabo Verde) by Maria de Barros On Nha Mundo, singer Maria de Barros makes her debut with a sensual but ultimately joyous mix of Cape Verdean music, which is a melting pot of traditional Portuguese, Cuban, Argentinean and West African styles. Much is going to be made of the fact that the young singer is goddaughter to the island country's greatest star, Cesaria Evora, but de Barros is smart enough to follow her own artistic path: Evora's music is often slow and bittersweet, ca

The voice on this album is among those I have believed in most strongly over the last few years. Ever since I heard Nha Vida, I have been telling anyone who cares to listen that the future of Cape Verdean music already has a name: Lura. Some shadows shine with their own light. Those that form this song, for instance. A smoothly burning voice, at once sweet and caustic, providing us with reasons to live. A voice we want to hear on both joyful and sad occasions. A voice that soothes us and sweeps

2005 debut album from the Cuban-born singer. Although she was born in Cuba, Mayra has lived in Senega, Angola, Germany, Cape Verde and finally Paris. Navega is an album six years in the making and every note has been well worth the wait.

RCA/Victor.

Although only 22 years old when she made her album debut with Navega in 2007, she was already a world traveler. A Cape Verdean born in Cuba, she had lived in Senegal, Angola, Germany and Portugal as well as Cape Verde before settling in France. At the age of 16 she won the gold medal at an international music festival in Canada. Charles Aznavour, the French chanteur par excellence, invited her to sing a duet with him for his 2005 album. She also recorded with Brazilian pop stars Chico Buarque an

Double vinyl LP pressing. 2018 collection. Through 18 diverse tracks, this compilation reveals how immigration from the Cape Verde Islands to Europe and the United States gave us an alternate history of the electronic music that dominated hearts and minds across the world in the late 1990s. But the story doesn't start in a major Western cultural hub, rather in the small cluster of islands 400 miles off the Senegalese coast, and offers an unparalleled insight into the long-term cultural splendor

beautiful Like Ireland, Cape Verde is a former island colony which has perennially lost its young people to emigration. And like its Irish counterpart, Verdean music is filled with songs of separation and homesickness. Cesaria Evora, the greatest Verdean singer of her generation, includes several of those songs on Cabo Verde, her sixth album overall but only her second release in the U.S. With a population descended from former Portuguese colonialists and former African slaves, Cape Verde close
