CABO VERDE CRETCHEU is a new group in Los Angeles dedicated to bringing you traditional music from the islands of Cabo Verde - the beautiful archipelago west of Africa in the Atlantic. Enjoy irresistibly charming rhythms like Coladeira or the nostaligic blues of a Morna with lyrics of love, lust, patriotism and mourning in the sensual creole language. Featuring the soulful voice of Dilma, daughter of legendary creole cavaquinho player Artur (Cesaria Evora) and guitarist - vocalist Mitchell Long (Maria de Barros) The group also features the phenomenal percussionist Ritchie “Gajate" Garcia and Brazilian Cavaquinho player Jean Pierre Trapenard. Special guests will be joining us creating a Cape Verdean music workshop where we can share the island beauty with musicians and music lovers. Cretcheu means “My Love" We invite you to love Sunday evenings by the Marina with us.
