RIP Cesária Évora

1941 – 2011

Known to fans around the world as the “Barefoot Diva”, because she would sing without her shoes on, Cesária Évora has died at the age of 70, after being ill for some time.

Whether singing coladeras (catchy songs for the dance floor) or mornas (Cape-Verdean blues), Évora took the music of her homeland around the world. Even if you weren’t able to understand the words she sang, you could feel the emotion behind them, enough to be moved.

And for that, we will remain ever grateful.
