Re: Carmen Souza (Cape Verde) @ St Ethelburga's on Dec 4th

We're delighted to welcome back to St Ethelburga's on Dec 4th, rising Cape Verdean star, Carmen Souza, who's been attracking rave reviews all over Europe.




This Cape Verdean songstress has it all: excellent repertoire, a nimble and versatile voice that glides effortlessly through a huge range of registers and a totally relaxed stage presence. Moreover, she swings like hell. Whether she is singing the plaintive morna (the Cape Verdean variation of the blues) or an exuberant batuco Souza is always convincing owing to her jazzy sense of timing and uncanny ability to bring several shades of nuance to even the highest and lowest notes she sings.��� by Ton Maas De Volkskrant 15 October 2008 review concert in Bimhuis, Amsterdam


"Cape Verdean musical riches abound on Carmen Souza's Forthcoming album, Verdade.The Singer, guitarist and Wurlitzer player brings her stripped-down band to tour the Uk with her distinctive fusion of classic, lilting Cape Verdean musical forms and Jazz." by Tim Cumming, THE INDEPENDENT

Born in Lisbon within a Christian family of Cape Verdeans. Very young she experienced the "Sodade" feeling of missing someone with the long absence of her father due to his work at sea. She grew up in a mixed environment of Creole, the Cape Verde dialect her parents spoke at home, and Portuguese, always surrounded by the Cape Verdean way of life. Being a strong spiritual person, Carmen always saw music as her mission and felt it a privilege to have the opportunity to express herself through it, working hard every day to deserve that.
