Cesária Évora Passes Away at 70

I first experienced Cape Verde – and another facet of the Diaspora – through your haunting, bittersweet voice. Thank you for that, Barefoot Diva.

Cesária Évora, Fly Sister, 1941-2011



Also, you can listen to my favorite song by Ms. Évora, “Roma Criola,” from her 1999 album Café Atlantico. It’s one to add to the collection.
