A TAV Curator’s Pick.

A native of the island nation of Cape Verde, Cesária Évora was known as the country's foremost practitioner of the morna, a combination of West African percussion with Portuguese fados, Brazilian modhinas, and British sea shanties. After a short singing career in the 1970's, she returned in the late '80s with a string of fine albums.

“Cesária Évora released Miss Perfumado in 1992. It sold over 300.000 copies worldwide. The album included one of her most celebrated songs "Sodade", composed by Amandio Cabral.

Cesária Évora has the most glorious voice on Portugese melodies. The guitar-runs have escaped from a fado recording. The classic piano and string group of Miss Perfumado help explain its near-bestselling status, the near-Brazilian rhythms make the album complete.” – Music On Vinyl

“Ravishing is the word that springs to the lips: one of those tiresome British understatements, but it'll have to do. Evora has the most glorious voice, the melodies are heartrendingly Portuguese, the guitar-runs have escaped from a fado recording. The classic piano and string group of Miss Perfumada help explain its near-bestselling status, the near-Brazilian rhythms add the zip that tops the whole thing off.” – AllMusic
