Mornas De Cabo Verde

Description

16 mornas performed by the greatest voices: Cesaria Evora, Ildo Lobo, Lura, Nancy Vieira, Albertino, and by the new generation: Elida Almeida, Ceuzany, Jenifer Solidade and more. Morna is the national music in the hearts of the people of Cape Verde. It resembles Portuguese fado, but it is not the Creole version of that genre, which was looked on with scorn by the Portuguese colonists. Morna probably comes from lament, a style of singing brought from Angola by slaves. Its accents are rough and heart-rending. Etymologically, the word "morna" may come from the English verb "to mourn", but its origin is obscure. Sailors probably developed its final form. Indeed, apart from Angolan chanting, it holds suggestions of Argentinian tango and Brazilian modinha.
