Cesaria Evora in Concert
UCLA Live presents the legendary diva from Cape Verde.
Friday, March 17, 2006
8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Los Angeles, CA 90095
After numerous sold-out UCLA Live engagements, the legendary barefoot diva returns to Royce Hall to perform the wistful, minor key ballads of her native Cape Verde. Singing in Portuguese-Creole, her rich, smoky-soft alto voice, quivering with emotion, has been compared to Billie Holiday, Celia Cruz, Edith Piaf and Bessie Smith.
“Evora is that rare performer whose casual execution belies the complexity of her art … her warm, honey-colored tones and ‘voice of experience’ delivery imbue her recordings with an emotional immediacy that transcends language barrier” [Time Out, New York]. “Her voice is at once noble and heartbreaking, her music a sensual slow dance toward an inevitable abyss.”— The New York Times
