Tribute to Cesária Évora
Creation · Cape Verde and beyond
Friday · 9:00PM · Salahin

Starring Lucibela, Elida Almeida, Teofilo Chantre, Lura, Gaël Faye, Flavia Coelho & Carlo De Sacco

From local bars in Mindelo to the international music scene, Cesaria Evora has enabled the world to discover the richness of morna, a musical style singing songs of exile and nostalgia. Despite the fact that she left us for a better place in 2011, her voice continues to resound worldwide.

The yearning of the ‘saudade’, the swaying groove of the coladeras, the mornas’ blues, each of these musical styles find in the “barefoot diva” a conveyor at once enchanting, touching and sincere.  The orchestra that accompanied her all her life will celebrate her memory and her works. Alongside toastmaster and long-time accomplice Teofilo Chantre will be some of Cape Verde’s and international greatest contemporary vocalists.

With support from SACEM
