Cesaria Evora (1941-2011) was from the tiny island nation of Cape Verde, off the Atlantic coast of Africa and colonized by the Portuguese in 1456. Her voice is at times lilting, at times filled with longing - always compelling, even if you don't understand Cape Verdean Creole - it's timeless. This music goes well with a twist of lime, lights on a string at evening and bare feet for dancing. On my shelf, it's in with the Paolo Conte and the Buena Vista Social Club because it gives me the same feeling of languid festivity - highly recommend!

GREAT 2010 compilation with 2 CDs of 32 cuts of Cesaria 'Queen of Morna' Evora singing Cape Verdean Portuguese Morna music.
Morna is widely considered the national music of Cape Verde, as is the fado for Portugal, the tango for Argentina, the merengue for Dominican Republic, the rumba for Cuba, and so on.
Good listen as I continue my exploration of world music...
