Death of Cesaria Evora

The “barefoot diva” died on Saturday 17 December at the age of 70. Cesaria Evora, the famous Cape Verdean singer, had been suffering from health problems that had obliged her to put a stop to her career three months ago. Her homeland archipelago and numerous fans are mourning a distinctive artist who introduced the morna, or “Cape Verdean blues” to the whole world.
