CREOLE…

THE MYSTIQUE OF A PEOPLE, THE MAGIC OF MUSIC

The Cabo Verde Creole is not only a linguistic expression, is a bond of union, the mystique of fraternal understanding among those who came from different origins, the full expression of rich feelings in speech, music, writing. The Creole language was born of the need for understanding between settlers arrived from Europe and the slaves brought from Africa. Its development represented integration, the creation of an identity, the formation of a plural, multi-cultural society, at the same time unique and genuine.This is the magical world that welcomes the visitor. The magic of the carnivals of São Vicente and São Nicolau, the unmistakable São João of Fogo, the unforgettable and passionate chords of the morna songs by Eugénio Tavares from Brava. Surrender and let yourself be led by the trembling rhythms of batuque, funaná, and coladeira. You will feel that, with a noticeable lightness, you will begin to be part of this engaging seductive culture as the creole is in his/her music, in essence.
