Program #1952

Music from the Portuguese Diaspora takes center stage on this edition of New Sounds. While small in population, Portugal's influence extends across the Atlantic Ocean, and artists like Paolo Braganca and Madredeus have much in common with the choro practitioners of Brazil. We also hear works by Cesaria Evora, who hails from the Cape Verde, off the northwest coast of Africa; Caetano Veloso, the legendary Brazilian singer and a founder of the tropicalia cultural movement; and other artists from Portuguese-speaking Africa and South America.
