"Carmen Souza is the Cape Verdean Norah Jones. (Get with it, Beeb!) With eight albums to her credit, Lisbon-born and London-based Souza is a stellar recording artist, an in-demand live performer, a pinnacle of the international music scene and a class act brimming with distinct talent...Souza encompasses a talent that belies geography, linguistics, gender, and ethnomusicology. Or as Village Voice scribe Richard Gehr says: Souza's live performance is "a foaming polyrhythmic puddle of unceasing acoustic amazement." A gifted pianist and guitarist, Souza is at her commanding best when she opens her mouth to sing, unleashing a soul of immense beauty and power...Souza is no mere follower of Cape Verdean legend Cesária Évora, the Queen of Morna, but a spiritual descendent who evokes Évora and furthers the jazz tradition from Ella Fitzgerald to Nikki Yanofsky."
