Miss Perfumado

Sometimes I have the overwhelming need to hear the voice of Cesaria Evora...sometimes you just need to hear a few notes to make you feel that it's alright.  The greatest barefoot diva of our time, she was the voice of Capo Verde, Angola. This is a music that spans all cultures. The language of Capo Verde is Portuguese. The music is somehow african, somehow Brazilian, but 100% Angolan...a style called "moma" which is like the Spanish Fado style, but so much softer, so much more rhythmic. This is an almost hour long convert recorded in 2001 in Paris.
