Treasured by critics and audiences as the queen of world music, Cesaria Evora knows few equals, and "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). Always a huge hit with Cal Performances audiences, "the barefoot diva" returns with two evenings of soulful Cape Verdean morna music?a rhythmically sophisticated blend of African blues and Portuguese fado that communicates a world of passion, heartache, and pain, without any hint of self-pity.
