Cesaria Evora - Sao Vicente Di Longe (2001) Retail CD
Sao Vicente di Longe literally means Cesaria Evora's home-island "seen from afar"', and with this new compilation Cape Verde's premier singer does indeed roam far and wide. Recorded in Paris, Rio, and Havana, it's the usual heady stuff, this time with input from a battery of Latin-American stars, including cellist Jacques Morelenbaum, pianist Chucho Valdes, and the Brazilian singer Caetano Veloso. The title track is a morna, the ballad-form which has such sweet overtones of Portuguese fado--the nostalgia, the instrumentation--but which is unique to Cape Verde. A lot of the songs here are almostmore… uncharacteristically cheerful: the "barefoot diva" is clearly relishing her stardom, and the escape it offers from her recent memories of mid-Atlantic poverty. However, those who like me have long been smitten by her incredible voice, with its monumental underlying calm, and with its lazy swoops over beds of tender strings, may feel that in this piece of genial fusion something has got lost along the way. Something sweet and painful, something raw and unhealed, as exemplified in the heart-stopping "Sodade" which began Miss Perfumado, the record which first put her on the map. That's the one to start with, then get Cesaria Evora: Cabo Verde. --Michael Church
