Comprised mainly of musicians who accompanied the late, great, barefoot diva during the last decade of her brilliant career, The Cesaria Évora Orchestra came together at this year's Kriol Jazz Festival in Praia to honour her memory and pay tribute to the remarkable influence she had on raising the profile of Cabo Verdeanmusic around the world. With the all-star line-up exhibiting their customary high standard of musicianship and ensemble playing, the honour of performing the songs that Cesaria made famous falls to two stars of a younger Cabo Verdean generation: the cool, clear-voiced Nancy Viera, who has made her name bringing a fresh wave of influences to the classic morna style, and the contrasting earthy and soulful singing of Jenifer Solidade. A top-quality nostalgic celebration of a singular artist, performed with love and gratitude.
