Cape Verde [9/18 – 9/24]

18 Sep

This week, we’ll travel to the remote and rocky islands of Cape Verde, 300 miles off the coast of West Africa, where musical tradition holds strong, but thanks to the exodus of Cape Verdeans to communities abroad, the music has grown into one of the world’s most unique vocal styles. Join us as we listen to the enchanting mornas, funanas and coladeiras from these beautiful islands.
