Synopsis

Album Description
The phrase "So Sabi" literally means "How great" or "That's tasty." So Sabi: The 1996 New England Cape Verdean Folklife Festival was held on May 31 and June 1, 1996 at the Boston Center for the Arts in the historic South End. The event was produced by Cape Verdeans and friends from around Southeastern New England. It was memorable time, including a poetry workshop, a mastro raising, a student art show, kola dancing in procession, film screenings, craft demonstrations and a website. Many legendary musicians were booked for the event, most of whom had not recorded recently. So, in addition to a main stage of music, a recording studio was set up in the downstairs Black Box Theatre in front of a small live audience. Four bands in five hours laid down these tracks while the engineers scrambled. There were glitches; there were sublime sparks. Here is the result.
