Product Description

Mayra Andrade's compelling performance shows an artist at the peak of her powers, all captured live in the acoustically sympathetic surroundings of Studio 105, Radio France, Paris. Focusing on her voice supported by an acoustic trio of guitar, percussion and double bass with occasional guests, the performance is as powerful as is intimate. The album comprises of an audio CD with a DVD of the concert plus bonus footage of rehearsals. This is an essential chapter in the continuing story of a young singer and performer once championed by the late Charlie Gillett and whom he described as a true star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection 16 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I own all of Mayra Andrades albums and this is by far my favourite one. An intimate live concert purportedly recorded in Studio 105 at Radio France, this is a warm, languorous blend of the familiar and new. Familiar, popular pieces from her albums 'Navega' and 'Storia Storia' are rendered fresh and exciting with new arrangements or guest artists. In particular, the solemn yet rousing rendition of 'Dispidida' in which Mayra is brilliantly accompanied by the cellist Vincent Segal is quite simply phenomenal. As is her haunting version of 'Michelle' which might just be better than the original. Heresy I know! But this shows just how much of a unique talent Ms Andrade is.
A truly wonderful album and a worthy addition to any music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful voice! 19 Mar 2012
By SteveFromBoston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like Cape Verdian music, you won't be disappointed in Mayra Andrade! Absolutely beautiful talent! She's a modern day Cesaria Evora. I wish her CDs were more readily available in the US. I bought all three of her Cd's here on Amazon and love them all (but expensive in US)!!

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it. A lot actually. 31 Dec 2012
By John Platt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a concert she gave at Studio 105 Radio France in late 2010. It features Brazilian musicians Ze Luis Nascimento and Munir Hossn, who did the arrangements, Cuban bassist Rafael Paseiro and guests cellist Vincent Sagal and singer Hugh Coltman. That is one SERIOUSLY heavy lineup.

I do recommend it strongly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing studio concert sound! 26 Feb 2012
By Daniel Biehl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had already purchased Mayra Andrade's first album a couple of years ago, but I was completely astonished by the elegance and maturity of her vocal explorations, with superb accompaniment, on this album of a public studio recording session. The energy is palpable among the musicians and the improvisation is real and rampant.
In combination with this energy and the vitality of Mayra's voice, there is some sort of extraordinary recording technology happening here. My stereo (actually a combination iPod/cd player) has absolutely never brought me into the room like this cd does! I may usually deadpan my expressions of enthusiasm, but this is really something different.
What the descriptions don't mention is that the second disc is actually a DVD, although it won't work in our player because it is a PAL standard recording of the same concert. I am hoping I can find a way to make it work.
I totally recommend this recording to anyone who loves an amazing performance and such a presence.

I found her by accident and it was a pleasure to listen to her voice. Her vocals are soothing and she does it all with class. This album will not disappoint. Buy it today. Love the drums!
