I was introduced to this singer - the late Cesaria Evora by Vagabonde only to discover she is a favourite of Guyana Gal and Cloudcutter. The song Sodade means longing.
Everything about this recording including the décor and the men - they all seem fit as fleas in the good health sense - takes me back to the islands and they are all so cool. Enjoy.

Isn't she lovely?
Back in the Canaries
This is my idea of a nightmare pavement. Anyone, over 65 with Vari Lux glasses will understand.
