Editorial Reviews

Cesaria Evora has overcome poverty, a revolution and even a recent stroke to become a national treasure of Cape Verde and uphold her reputation as an increasingly adventurous icon of world music. On her latest album, Nha Sentimento, Evora ventures further afield than ever before, twisting Arabic musical traditions into bluesy, sinuous compositions from some of Cape Verde's best songwriters. The music of Cape Verde is diverse, incorporating guitar, violin, and soprano saxophone into its Latin scales and rhythms. Egypt's reedy pipes, edgy percussion, lush strings and the crystalline sound of the kanun (Arabic zither) feel right on home.

The soothing, enchanting, mellow sounds of Cesaria Evora, never ceases to amaze me and no matter what this lady sings, she sounds great! The music of Cabo Verde is quite diverse and this album is a great example of this. Many of the songs on this CD have Latin or Middle Eastern rhythms, and tend to be more uptempo in comparison to many of her previous albums, although there are slow and midtempo tunes on the CD as well.

Many of these uptempo tunes make you want to get up and dance and are some of my favorite including: "Serpentina," "Verde" Cabo di Nhas Odjos," Ligereza," "Zinha," "Techom Frio," "Holandesa Co Certeza," I also ejoyed some of her mid tempo tunes, such as "Fatalidade"," Repopsta Menininhas de Monte Sossego," and "Parceria E Irmandade." And of course her melancholy type songs with beautiful words, great instrumentation and orchestration such as: "Sentimiento," "Novia de Ceu," "Mam' Bia E So Mi" is what attracted me to her sound from the very beginning; an easy laid back sound that takes you on a journey to another place.

Cesaria Evora's music can take you anywhere and can be played at any time for anyone. Even if you don't understand the words, she sings with such passion and emotion, you can't help but get in to it because good music speaks to our emotional core and crosses all barriers.

I highly recommend adding this latest CD to your listening collection. For those who are familiar with Cesaria's music, it is a slight step away from her traditional Cape Verdean "morna" sound, but it is not so far away that you can't relate to it. Her music is simply, captivating. I should also add that there is nothing like seeing this barefoot chanteuse perform live!!!

Cesaria Evora
"Nha Sentimento"
(Lusafrica, 2009)
----------------------------------
Another utterly gorgeous album from Cesaria Evora, the queen of the Cape Verde singers... This album marks a return to simpler, more acoustic instrumentation, and a reconnection with the magic of her early work. I found this album every bit as satisfying as her 1999 masterpiece, "Cafe Atlantico," which is perhaps my favorite of all her albums. If you loved "Cafe Atlantico," too, you'll definitely want to check this one out... It's a lovely, lyrical record -- mysterious, evocative, pleasantly alluring in a way that make you hit "repeat" for days on end. Highly recommended. (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Guide To World Music)

Cesaria Evora's music just gets better. When I was in Cape Verde in November 2010, my friend bought this same CD. When I tried to buy it in the US, it was not available, so I was very excited to be able to purchase it from Amazon.com.
