If you haven’t heard Lura on Youtube, or on cd, this will be a perfect opportunity for you to see her live in concert (details of concert below). Lura’s rich heritage influences a lot of her music.

Born in France, of Cape Verdean parents, her music is a blend of French Afro-pop, Brazilian rhythms and earthy, traditional African music. Early in her career, she went on tour with another world-famous Cape Verdean songstress Cesaria Evora. She has been described as a dynamic world class musician.

Listen here to sample her music.

And if you are a fashionista like me, you will love her summery dresses that are as bright as her music is beautiful. See you there!
