5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, 23 July 2006
This review is from: The Very Best Of (Audio CD)
I agree with the previous reviewer both that this is an excellent introduction to the wonderful music of Cesaria and that this is a singer that doesn't get nearly enough respect or attention in the UK.

Her glorious voice is really something else (apparently developed by the copious smoking of cigars!). The music turns from joy to lament, but the passion underneath all of the songs is unmistakable and infectious.

Her sound is clearly influenced by the Portuguese Sodade sytle but you can clearly discern the African influences too which are rolled into a sublime mix on this album. She is also very lucky in her backing vocals and her band, all of whom are excellent vocalists/instrumentalists in their own rights.

This particular album is worth buying for the first song "Sodade", which is a truly wonderful anthem, but this is an album with something for everyone. Your CD collection will not really be complete without at least one album of Cesaria's.
