Beyond African, Brazilian and Cuban, blending acoustic and electric, PALOP Africa! presents another dimension to African music.

The Tour
For generations, Cape Verde, like Cuba, has fused African rhythm with European melody to stunning effect. Add to the mix Brazilian influences and you have some of the most soulful and sensuous music on earth.

Three singers of the new generation Maria Alice, Lura and Nancy Vieira bring this richness to life and show us how much more we have to discover from the Islands that gave us Cesaria Evora. Tour runs from 13th to 22nd November 2003.
