5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful voice, wonderful songs, 26 May 2007

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BALANCE (Audio CD)
I first heard Sara singing "Bom Feeling" on the Jools Holland show, so I bought the albumn on the strength of one song. I haven't regretted. Highlights include the upbeat "One Love" and the hauntingly beautiful "De Nua". "Poka Terra" is a superb exercise in complicated rhythm, executed effortlessly. I challenge anyone to dislike this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bom Feeling Indeed!, 19 April 2008
This review is from: BALANCE (Audio CD)
I first saw this in a store. Like I do with all new music, I noted the name and checked it out online. Within a few minutes of hearing the samples, I knew I had to get it.

Born in Portugal but heavily influenced by both her native Cape Verde and Europe, Sara Tavares has crafted a piece of musical magic that is sure to enchant you a little more by the day.

Stand out tracks for me are Balance, Bom Feeling and One Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful and often moving collection of songs and performances, 4 Aug 2006

This review is from: Balance (Audio CD)
from the singer who represented Portugal at Eurovision in 1994. But this album is a long way from Eurovision. It's authentic and fresh: playful on the title track, and almost heartbreakingly gentle on "Guisa" and "Muna Xeia."

This CD marks Sara Tavares' arrival as a mature singer/songwriter, and as a musician too. There are shades of Astrud Gilberto here, and also of a young Miriam Makeba. But it's original throughout, and if this recording is any indication then Sara Tavares is definitely an artist to watch out for.

Saw Sara on Jools Holand show on the BBC and rushed to buy the CD. her voice has a wonderful tonal quality and the music is laid-back and soothing. Only drawback is....I have no idea what she's singing about.
