Maria De Barros
Join us for this special return performance from Maria De Barros, Thursday Aug. 2nd at 8PM(Doors 7:30) Tickets $20/23.
Maria De Barros' music transcends taste, preference and even language. It travels through countries dense with culture, picking up pieces of each along the way, combining distinct inflections of Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, France and Spain, while allowing the tradition and culture of Cape Verde to permeate.
Maria invites you into her heart with the warmth of a close friend. Her most recent album Morabeza, aptly titled, epitomizes what she chooses to express: the tradition and beauty of the people and the landscape. Her music defines a much-needed optimism in the face of suffering and hardship in Africa. Although Maria was born in Dakar, Senegal and grew up in Nouackchott, Mauritania, her creative heart lies in the culturally rich Islands of Cape Verde, the birthplace of her parents.
