Synopsis

Product Description
Cesaria Evora did not begin to record in earnest until she was forty-seven, but to hear her sing is to hear the voice of Cape Verde, her people and her history. Called "the barefoot diva" by the Parisian fans who propelled her to international celebrity in the late 1980s, Evora performs in the traditional Cape Verdean musical styles the morna, a song of longing, and the coldera, a song of playfulness. With every note she sings, Evora not only tells us of her homeland,she takes us there and makes us feel at home.
