In Review--Hot, Hot, Hot Cape Verdean Music

Mayra Andrade

Stern's Music

Cape Verde--another young vocalist, Mayra Andrade brings us effervescent tunes. Similar to compatriots Sara Tavares and Lura, Andrade's vocals soar over Cape Verdean rhythms and the vocalist caresses each note as if the notes were lovers. The music here goes down easy and feels good on a sunny or rainy day.

Certainly, Andrade is a talent to watch. And for those who cannot get enough of Cape Verdean vocalists, Navega is a must.
