Just returned from the WOMAD festival and saw Lura live and was completely blown away. Amazing voice well backed by excellent musicians and a real passion for her homeland (she was born in Lisbon but her family are from Cape Verde, just off Senegal). The style of music, 'Batuku', is traditionally sung by the women of Cape Verde and has fantastic rhythm and definitely something to dance to! Don't be put off if you've never heard of her, or don't normally buy 'world music'; rather than stick to the usual diet of what everyone else is buying, try something new for a change. Highly recommended.

I first saw Lura in Valladolid (Spain) in the summer 2005. My friends and I were absolutely amazed by her beautiful voice, her songs and her energy. As soon as I realised she was touring in the UK, I immediately bought tickets to see her again at the Purcell Room. It was an even better gig. Someone from the Independent wrote that Lura turned the Purcell Room into a stadium. It was totally true. Listen to this and you will know what I mean...

Wonderful album, beautiful voice and such an interesting and charismatic performer - Es Bida is one of the most hauntingly tender and beautiful songs i have come across in a long time. Lura manages to bring her european/pop background to her native cape verde and produce such unique music.

Lura Lures Listeners 30 July 2006
By EJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is enchanting music from beginning to end. Although I had read about Lura for awhile, I only recently purchased this cd. I was immediately drawn to the beauty of this music; although it is labeled as Cape Verdean, it embraces a variety of rhythms and genres. Lura's energetic voice and her interpretive style at times, remind me of a blend of Margareth Menezes and Yusa. Lura has her own unique and powerful presence which is accompanied by outstanding musicians. The guitar work is particularly impressive, while the violin and accordion keep the music fresh, interesting, and mesmerizing. Five tracks on this cd were written by the late Orlando Pantera, and I am grateful to be exposed to his work through Lura's music. Although every Pantera song is incredible, I tend to favor the more rhythmic songs, "Batuku," "Vazulina," and "Raboita di Rubon Manel," Lura's vocals are extroadinary on these tracks. Lura should also be recognized for her songwriting, especially on "Oh Naia". To take the next step of the Lura experience, listeners must check out the dvd included in this cd package. The Lura concert on this dvd not only gives listeners a visual understanding of Lura's talent; her highly dynamic and expressive performance radiates with soul and passion...luring audiences at any venue, in any language,

Curiosity is an amazing propeller in this world we live in... 3 April 2006
By Momentum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was more than skeptical for reasons I'll never know, to actually purchase this cd. I heard a few clips, and just couldn't get into it. I thought, "this is just another afro-latin/tropicalismo cd. I have a few of these, why bother?" By the time I heard the clip for #7, I reluctantly handed over the credit card, because I have been known to buy albums just for one song. #7 stood out at once, and I could feel myself relax. Okay, I'll buy it just for this song.

I never dissappoint myself, neither do the artists I place a mustard seed of faith in.

This incredibly dynamic and strangely spiritual album is one of the best I have ever bought. Her voice is so authentic, but like rich, dark chocolate that can only be savored. And its all worth the time. This album is pleasure at its best. Perfect for bright warm days at the beach or a cookout, yet romantic and sensual for a dinner for two...or a dinner party for eight. Its wonderful to put the children to sleep, and upbeat to dance until the sun returns.

I listen with awe, fascination, inspiration, honor...she is a professional if I ever heard one. This is one album you will never regret purchasing. It has the right measurements of spice, jazz, island, afro, asiatic and tropical influences that make a complete music experience a reality.

If you are a fan of world music, or good music in general, once you get this album, you'll wished you had heard about it sooner.

Fabulous CD, Fabulous Artist! 15 Feb. 2006
By Maria F. Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I first heard of Lura from my family residing in MA which has the largest Cape Verdean population in the U.S. I bought the cd from Amazon and have been a fan ever since! She is diverse, she is fun and she brings the traditional flavors of Cape Verdean music that I grew up listening to along with a more up to date and progressive beat. I went to see her in concert in Atlanta and I cannot WAIT for her to return.....AWESOME!

Lura viva Africa 1 Aug. 2006
By SaviorFromZion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an absolute must have. I had never been exposed to West African music but this CD got me hooked. I am from Southern Africa and thats all I knew music wise but I must say, African musicians are under rated, they have a lot to offer but the world hasn't taken notice yet. Lura does justice to the beauty of African music on this CD.

Great cabo verdean musician with a style of her own 11 Jan. 2007
By Osvaldina G. Daly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm a native Cabo Verdean and truly enjoyed this CD. Lura has a style of her own. It's great for listening or dancing. If you are a "true" Cabo Verdean, you will definately do more than tap your feet. I highly recommed this CD.
