Music Recommendation

I have not blogged much recently because things have been hectic here. But, I did discover a new musical artist the other week. Like everything else I am way behind the curve on this discovery. I do not know enough about music to write a competent review. So I will just have to make this a recommendation. Cesaria Evora's Sao Vicente issued by Windham Hill Records in 2001 has been playing on my CD player for the last few weeks. It is my first exposure to the music of Cape Verde and I like it a lot.

Dear Otto,

If you like Cesaria Evoria you might like to try Fado as well. Why not Amália Rodrigues or current Maritza?

Vilhelm, thanks for the recommendations. I found Cesaria Evoria just browsing among the cd collection of my local library. It was the only one they had from Cape Verde. When I get out of Arivaca next I will look for the artists you mention.
