For today, I wanted to share with you “Batuque“, a splendid deep melancholic Afro Soul Folklore Blues with Bossa Nova flavors, taken from the first album recorded in the 70s at the Portuguese recording studios Estúdio Musicorde, by the Cape Verdean composer & singer Milá Melo backed with the band Evolução África, composed with : Ze Moutinho, Nelo, João Rui, Zé Dias and Victor.

This beautiful album, really hard to find nowadays, was released on the legendary local label “A Voz De Cabo Verde“, based in the island of São Vicente – Enjoy !
