“Cabo Verde Toca Jazz” is the name of a musical project launched by the Municipality of Praia and the Kriol Jazz Festival, to celebrate World Jazz Day, which is celebrated today, April 30th.
Artistic Direction is by José da Silva with the music production by Hernani Almeida, the sound mix by Zunga Pinheiro and the image work by Patrick Clacket.
This project is already available on digital platforms. The band is formed by Carlos Matos, Piano, Hernani Almeida, Guitar, N’Du Carlos – Drums, Totinho on Saxophone, Vando Pereira on Bass and Nana Almeida, who interpreted the theme “Angola”, the well-known song and sung by the singer Cesária Évora.
Even though each one is in their homes, the stage will be unique with this theme, in this moment of confinement.
