PostSubject: Music of Cape Verde   Mon Nov 15, 2010 10:57 am

Cape Verdean social and cultural patterns are similar to those of rural Portugal and Africa.[10] Soccer (Futebol) games and church activities are typical sources of social interaction and entertainment.[10] The traditional walk around the praça (town square) to meet friends is practiced regularly in Cape Verde towns.[10] In towns with electricity, television is available on two channels (Cape Verdean and Portuguese).[10]

Cape Verde music incorporates Portuguese, Caribbean, African, and Brazilian influences.[25] Cape Verde's quintessential national music is the morna, a melancholy and lyrical song form typically sung in Cape Verdean Creole. The most popular music genre after morna is the coladeira followed by funaná and batuque music. Amongst the most worldwide known Cape Verdean singers, are the singers Ildo Lobo and Cesaria Evora whose songs became a hallmark of the country and its culture. There are also well known artists born to Cape Verdean parents who excelled themselves. Amongst these artists are jazz pianist Horace Silver, Duke Ellington's saxophonist Paul Gonsalves and singer Lura.

Dance forms include the soft dance morna, the extreme sensuality of coladeira including the modernized version called passada (zouk), the Funaná (a sensual mixed Portuguese and African dance), and the Batuque dance.
