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.
