Monday Night August 26th at 8pm: CESARIA EVORA - Miss Perfumado
We'll try to start saying farewell to summer on Monday night with a trip to the tropical Cape Verde Islands. One woman is responsible for bringing this island nation's rich musical tradition to the world: Cesaria Evora (8/27/41-12/17/11). Her Cape Verdean mornas and Portuguese fados, blended with West African percussion, Brazilian modhinas, and British sea shanties, were among the most captivating and beautiful of world music sounds. No passport needed as we sail to Cape Verde with her 1992 album.
