One Night Only!
A sell-out sensation since her DC premiere at Lisner in 1996, the legendary barefoot diva returns to perform the wistful, minor key ballads of her native Cape Verde. Singing in Portuguese-Creole, her rich, smoky voice, quivering with emotion, has been compared to Edith Piaf, Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday.
?There is such universal longing and sadness in her huskily warm, weathered contralto that she manages to pull listeners into her music in ways that transcend language.? ? The Washington Post
