Cesaria Evora (August 27 1941 – December 17 2011)















Minha homenagem ao Cesaria.


It is with the profoundest sadness that I heard today of the death of one of my favourite singers, the great Cesaria Evora.  I have enjoyed her wonderful  emotion suffused voice and music for over twelve years.

I know I cannot do her justice in this hastily put-together post, but  let my heart speak for any deficiencies found here. I can follow written Portuguese, but I cannot translate any of the songs I am posting here – except for ‘Maria Elena’,  and ‘Besame Mucho which Evora sings in Spanish, and which everyone already knows!






Besame Mucho









Maria Elena





Mar Azul
