World Music PresentsLura
Lura is a captivating performer steeped in traditional Cape Verdean styles but also influenced by a vast range of international pop sounds. With a sultry, honeyed voice, Lura and her tight six-piece band draw on many Cape Verdean rhythms—mazurka, coladeira, batuku, funana, and morna—to create an infectious, contemporary sound.
"Gently crooning lullabies one moment, exulting in buoyant dance rhythms the next, Lura made plain why listeners around the world consider her heir to Césaria Évora." - Chicago Tribune
