Synopsis

Amazon.com
This 19-song compilation features a wide variety of artists from this small but influential island off the Senegalese coast. Opening with Cesaria Evora and an early tune, "Papa Joachim Paris," the album visits luminaries like Simentera, Paulino Vieira, and Tito Paris and introduces you to many less famous but deserving names. Real roots come from the Mindel Band with a raw violin and a perpetual groove. Luis Morais's band is jazzy and fun. Voz de Cabo Verde are sweet and homey. The album closes with a live, lush, yet ragged "Lundum" by Vieira and Celina Pereira, a perfect island tune of slight melody and lots of feeling. --Louis Gibson

CD Reviews

An excellent collection
05/17/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful CD, danceable,elegant, soulful. 74 minutes of music spread over 19 tracks. Perfect for the beach or long slow hot afternoons turning into nights. I listen to this in traffic and it never fails to put me in a better mood. Most of the artists on the album are female and if you like Cesaria Evora, Susanna Baca or Omara Portuondo than you will dig this."
Absolutely gorgeous

"Various Artists "THE SOUL OF CAPE VERDE"
(Tinder Production, 1996)
-------------------------------------------------------------------
One of the best world music compilations ever, and certainly one the best -- if not THE best collections of music from Cape Verde. One gorgeous song after another... a real must-have record, worth tracking down. (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Guide To World Music)"
Great collection

"If you can find this, do get it. It's a great, ethnic, unusual collection of Cape Verde. Voices, drum, instruments have a great endearing quality!"
