Cape Verde - Batuque and Finaçon (OCR561151)
"(...) as boundless as the sky, deep as the sea, and solid as a rock. It is our tradition and our happiness. (...) In the torments of famine (...) the elation of joy, and in the exiled children's nostalgia: batuque is our soul". It is this very soul which expresses itself, with the vigorous support of percussion, through the meaningful song of Nha Mita Pereira, a great figure of batuque tradition.
