Label: MB Records, Inc.
Capeverdean-American singer Sãozinha Fonseca has a silken purr of an alto -- just the kind of voice you want to sing morna. And she’s picked a wonderful project for that perfect voice: singing the mornas of storied Cape Verdean poet Eugénio Tavares, who helped shape the modern incarnation of the genre with his romantic, gorgeously mournful poems. Accompanied by little more than a guitar and a fiddle, Sãozinha glides across each aching note, the combination of that sliding, sobbing voice and these yearning songs encompassing centuries and miles of struggle, heartbreak and hope.
