Cape Verde; “The Strings of São Domingos”

Cape Verdian music scene  is alight  with Osinato Records recently released album, ‘The Strings of São Domingos’. The album brought together “disciples” of composer Ano Nobo,  a major exponent of a genre of Cape Verdean music played in natural setting without filters.

The double album, with the American label Ostinato Records, brings together four Cape Verdean artists who, over 15 tracks, with five interludes, play in an informal atmosphere, in homage to the viola as the centerpiece of their country’s music and also to the composer Ano Nobo, which gives its name to the quartet, formed by three of his sons and a ‘disciple’ (a kind of ‘borrowed son’).
