Cape Verdean singer Mayra Andrade embraces afrobeats
Issued on: Modified:
Mayra Andrade has often been described as the new Cesaria Evora. She revisits traditional Cape Verdean music by adding a modern touch. Her new album "Manga" is heavily influenced by African sounds and afrobeats, after a trip to Ghana changed the way she saw music. On Encore, she tells Clovis Casali how grateful she is for the advice she received from legendary artists such as Evora and Omara Portuondo from Buena Vista Social Club.
