EDITORS’ NOTES

With her sleepy delivery and warm, woody timbre, Cesária Évora is sultry and bewitching on Café Atlantico. Adding to her typical repertoire of traditional West African/Portuguese fado, this album finds the Cape Verdean songstress showing off a wide range of influences, diving into Cuban sounds to glorious effect. Diaphanous, shimmering strings enhance "Vaquínha mansa," and the playful flute accents on "Amor di mundo" are hard to resist.
