Carmen Souza

Carmen Souza was born in Lisbon within a Christian family of Cape Verdeans. Very early she experienced the “Sodade” feeling of missing someone with the long absence of her father due to his work at sea. She grew up in a mixed language environment of Creole, the Cape Verde dialect her parents spoke at home, and Portuguese, always surrounded by the Cape Verdean way of life.In her teens she sang professionally in a Lusophone Gospel Choir. Being a strongly spiritual person, Ms Souza always saw music as her mission and felt privileged to have the opportunity to express herself through it, working hard every day to deserve that opportunity.
