Music

Whether you’re walking through the cobblestone streets of Mindelo or high up in the mountains of Santiago, you’ll find that music is all around you in Cape Verde. The soundtrack of your vacation will include everything from the accordion-based dances of funaná, to the incessant drumming of the São João, to the sultry shake of coladeira. And of course after you return home you’ll be singing about your sodade for Cape Verde with a little help from the melancholic mornas of Cesária Évora and Ildo Lobo.
