Podcast: Kickin' It In Cabo Verde by Afropop Worldwide published on 2014/06/02 21:16:56 +0000 Cabo Verde (also known as Cape Verde) is undeniably a music powerhouse. Despite its small size (population 500,000), the West African archipelago is the third-largest country in music sales in the “World” market by some estimations. That’s why the islands have become home to the Atlantic Music Expo: a trans-oceanic music fair featuring conferences and concerts that attract musicians and industry professionals from across the globe. In this episode, Afropop drops in on the Expo to check out the latest in Cape Verdean music. We hear from talented singer-composers Neuza and Bino Barros, check out high-energy funaná from Ferro Gaita and Ze Espanhol, and sample other tasty musical fruits from the land that created Cesaria Evora.
