Municipality Day: “Brava” brand presented to the public through Renda Brava products Nova Sintra, Jun 24 (Inforpress) – The first collection by Renda Brava products project, which represents the Brava brand, was presented to the citizens of Brava, in an exhibition organized by CNAD and the City Hall, in Nova Sintra. At the inauguration, the director of the National Center for Art, Crafts and Design (CNAD), Irlando Ferreira, showed that the exhibition and the brand represent the achievement of a “very great” challenge, because working from São Vicente to Brava, through digital means, “is completely different” than when working in person. As he pointed out, since 2018, when the project began, they were already aware that it would be a challenge, but the motivation of the creatives, both designers and the hand-embroidered made by women, made the CNAD and everyone involved bet everything was possible so that the project could get to what it is today. According to this official, the hand-embroidered made by women in Brava no longer exists for several years, and the CNAD wanted with the project to bring hand-embroidered made by women that had identity and symbology with this island, explaining the care the team had in carrying out the work.

Brava: Assol Garcia aims to recall “references” of traditional music with the “Morna & Memórias” project

Nova Sintra, Aug 18 (Inforpress) – Artist Assol Garcia created a project entitled “Mornas & Memórias”, in order to remember those who “did, continue to be part and will always be the references” of traditional music of Cabo Verde.

Speaking to Inforpress, the artist said the main objective is to continue Cabo Verdean music and disseminate the identity of the archipelago, in addition to increasing the culture of the islands.

“Today, our morna is considered an Intangible Heritage of Humanity. We have reached a level where we can never stop betting on our roots,” the same source said.

According to Assol Garcia, the “Mornas & Memórias” project intends to “sing Cabo Verde”, evoking names like Cesária Évora, Bana, Ildo Lobo, among others. She also explained that she does not select or choose the artists she wants to sing, but sings everything hits her soul, because she “admires” all the voices the Cabo Verdean music has had until now, from the older generation to the current generation.
