About Mendes Brothers

Two brothers from Cabo Verde, an island off the west coast of Africa, relocated to the Northeast U.S. with their musical aspirations. They launched a series of recordings that influenced the development of Lusophone (Portuguese-speaking) popular music. Injecting Portuguese mornas with Angolan rhythms and cross-pollinating them with American Funk and Antillean Zouk, they created a new music.
