Description

"There is such universal longing and sadness in her huskily warm, weathered contralto that she manages to pull listeners into her music in ways that transcend language." —The Washington Post

Treasured by critics and audiences, the queen of world music, Cesaria Evora knows few equals. Always a huge hit with Cal Performances audiences, “the barefoot diva” returns with two evenings of soulful Cape Verdean "morna" music—a rhythmically sophisticated blend of African blues and Portuguese "fado" that communicates a world of passion, heartache, and pain, without any hint of self-pity.
