My favorite track is called Sodade, which roughly translates to “longing” and can both describe the feeling of loss of love and the longing for home. To me the music and the lyrics remind me more of Portugal than West Africa but it undeniably represents a creole-like mixture of both. There is a beautiful dynamic between Cesaria’s rich warm voice and the higher pitched cavaquinho.

This Senegalese group has a spicy blend of musical styles that include Cuban rhythms, classic West African drumming, mbira-like guitar and a vocal style from the West-African griot storytellers. It’s really fun to listen to.
