Concert

Elida Almeida’s funaná, batuque and tabanka are festive and danceable, far from the melancholic morna of Césaria Evora but embodying Cape Verde’s rich culture just as much, as well as evoking the country’s everyday life. The 2015 winner of the prestigious Prix Découverte RFI, this young woman modernizes the traditional range to reach young people. Revitalizing.
