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.

Great buy

This is one of my favorite CDs by Cesaria. My CD somehow came up missing after letting a friend listen to it. I'm glade to find it on iTunes. She is truly a Classic in every way. The mixture of musical styles is blended with perfection.
