black history month: day 12

February 12, 2010

Cesaria Evora is simply an amazing artist.

Born in Cabo Verde, her music has reached all corners of the world.

Around 1997 it reached the corner of the after school job I had.

My manager and friend, Angel, used to play all kinds of music at Screaming Mimi’s.

Those afternoons after school we listened to Astrud Gilberto, Rupaul and of course Ms. Evora.

Somes years later when I released my first album in Japan I covered one of Cesaria’s songs.

Paraiso D’Atlantico.

Happy Black History Month Cesaria Evora.

Wherever you are.
