The day’s finally arrived, after months of anticipation – Cape Verdean singer Maria de Barros is in town for a show tonight! She’s on tour now with the new recording “Morabeza”, which was partly recorded here in Vermont at the Charles Ellers Studios.
She’s the god-daughter of Cape Verdean legend Cesaria Evora, carrying forward in that Portuguese fado-inspired tradition and bringing her own upbeat style to the music as well.
Ready to dance? Me too. What a way to launch summertime!
Doors at 7:30pm, the show starts at 8 in the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge. Click here for ticket/accessibility info.
