Maria de Barros

In need of a mental vacation? Cue up Morabeza, the latest release from this 2004 TD Top Ten artist. Within the first few bars, you'll find yourself sitting on the outdoor patio of a seaside cafe in Cape Verde, soaking in the view of the azure sea, with the cool drink of your choice in your hand. But this is no simple happy hour fare. This is deeply beautiful music that captures the soul of a people. The title refers to solidarity in times of misfortune... kindness, tenderness, hospitality, sympathy and friendship. Captivating. Transporting. Uplifting.
