The Ile de France festival that will take place on September 28th and 20th 2012, planned a beautiful homage to Cesaria Evora. We used to call her “The barefoot diva”, she was a true icon of Cap Vert. Her rasping voice stood up amongst thousands. Numerous artists will be present paying her a tribute on stage at Cirque d´Hiver. Bonga, Angélique Kidjo, Teofilo Chantre, Camané, and the chorus singers and musicians of Cesaria Evora will retake the mornas and coladeiras repertory. Keep your tissues nearby, you’ll need them!
