AllMusic Review by

The romantic morna style from Cape Verde is incredibly popular in France. This French import contains some of the most popular songs from the Cape Verdean tradition, combining the sweet, soulful singing that the morna is known for with often upbeat sounds on modern instruments, including electric guitar. While the musicianship is not always superlative like on the releases of artists like Cesaria Evora, this is a fine and balanced collection that provides a good introduction to this fine style of music.
