Sara Tavares is one of the most beloved voices of the Portuguese audience and presented us at the end of 2017 with one of the best national albums. This year she was invited by David Byrne to take the stage at the EDP Cool Jazz concert, won the CVMA 2018 for best performance and is headlining in many national festivals.
It is difficult to recognize the Sara Tavares that was revealed to us more than 20 years ago, in a journey that has 5 original albums, gold record, nominated as a Breakthrough Artist for the BBC World Music Awards in 2007, shared a stage with Joss Stone and Nelly Furtado among many others.
Her Cape Verdean roots, her love of soul and her ease with a melody contribute to create a true world music and the confirmation of a singer-songwriter capable of bridging Africa and Europe with a unique sensitivity.
After a few years without recording, Sara Tavares is back on albums with “Fitxadu” (closed in Creole. A must see concert.
