play the music of Amandio Cabral (2005)

"These selections are intended for people who are relaxing, who want a little touch of music . . ." says Cabral. Some of these melodies have their origins in the Republic of Cape Verde, where Cabral was born. This is jazz that resembles the sound of waves.

Living on an island, surrounded by the sea, one can feel both isolated and centered. On several of the Cape Verde islands, one can look in two, even three, directions, and see only the Atlantic Ocean. Cape Verde is hundreds of miles from the nearest continent.

There are no borders, except those imposed by nature. Ships arrive; people and their music mingle; and then the ships depart. When islanders leave for the "mainland," it is not always easy to return. Missing their islands, Caboverdeans sing songs of sodade.
