On the 8th of April, at 21:30, B.Leza receives the project “Cape Verdean Blues” in the voice of Kavita Shah. The project, which brings together the award-winning American jazz vocalist and composer, producer Bau and musician Miroca Paris, was born as a tribute to the music of Cesária Évora and Cape Verde.
The expected release is scheduled for August 2023, with the label Folkalist Records. This concert marks the pre-release of the album.
It’s on the way to the AME (Atlantic Music Expo) that Kavita passes through Lisbon for a unique concert at B.Leza. Accompanied by Stephan Almeida and Djodje Almeida on guitars and Miroca Paris on percussion, it promises to be an unprecedented concert.
