An African Musical Icon and Legend Passes: RIP Cesaria Evora “Barefoot Diva”

by Nelima

I woke up this morning to see this message in my Facebook stream.

I was heartbroken! Cesaria Evora has been a long time favorite of mine (and many around the world), I really hoped that I would get the chance to see her perform live. Nonetheless I am glad to have even known of her music, she is singing with the Angels now.

For those of you who didn’t know her – I leave you with her song “Sodade”, which is loosely translated as a feeling of longing for something or someone that one was fond of and which is lost. Visit her official website click here. Feel free to share your thoughts.
