Essential compilation, October 11, 2005
Reviewer: Joburgpete "irridium" (Johannesburg)

"This compilation of the Cape Verdean legend contains her best work of the years 1988 to 2001. She performs two distinctive styles of song. The Morna is a type of lament derived from the Portuguese Fado, often based on the longing of emigrants for their homeland. The Coladera is a rhythmic, dance-oriented style that is more uptempo than the morna. By the way, Amalia Rodriguez is great Fado singer whose work is well worth investigating.

With her deeply soulful voice Cesaria is a mistress of both Cabo Verdean styles ...."]
