Lucibela

Cape Verde’s Lucibela brings sounds popularized by the late, great singer Cesária Évora—Portuguese-influenced folk propelled by a silky, emotive voice, trained by years of singing in Santa Maria hotel bars. Lucibela’s 2018 debut album Laço Umbilical is a showcase of the West African archipelago’s regional music: morna, a take on the melancholic laments of traditional Portuguese fado, and coladeira, the buoyant folk music of celebration.
