Carmen Souza @ Purcell Rooms
Jul 13 all-day

Born in Portugal to Cape Verdean parents, Carmen Souza fuses her forebears’ musical traditions with contemporary jazz, Latin and European music.

After the acclaimed jazz album Epistola, Carmen Souza, with the help of her longtime musical partner Theo Pascal, returns to her creole roots to present a new album called Creology. With her gravity-defying voice she guides us in the musical journey of her ancestors on a unique transatlantic route through the sounds of the Creole Nation.

Discover rhythms like Batuque, Funana, Semba, Quilapanga, Marrabenta from Cabo Verde, Angola, Mozambique together with Afro-Brazilian and Cuban sounds, travelling all the way to the jazz shores of New Orleans and experience a unique live atmosphere!
