Amazon Editorial Reviews’s Best of 1998
Cesaria Evora asked heartache to come in and set a spell. The morna, the slow, rhythmically balladic blend of African blues and the Portuguese fado, was the perfect medium. Released in 1998 in the United States, this 1992 album about nostalgia, longing, hit-and-run lovers, and the sea features titles like «Barbincour» («The Conman») and «Torura» («Torture»). Not the least of Evora’s magical appeal is that her smooth, honey-rich vocals suggest a universe of passion and pain with nary a spasm of self-pity to break the spell.                          —Elena Oumano
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars A sublime introduction to world music, December 25, 1998
This review is from: Miss Perfumado (Audio CD)
Cesaria is a diva that is without doubt. Miss Perfumado is a wonderful blend of everything that you would imagine Cape Verde to be; African and Portugese, hot and beautiful. When you listen to this album, close your eyes and you can almost smell the sea, feel the sand on your feet and the sun on your back. Equally you will feel that you share the anxieties, pleasures and pain that Diva Evora sings about. The rhythms in the track Angola are delicious. Do not be surprised if you find that you cannot stop your toe tapping and if your body just gets up to dance just enjoy. Listening to Miss Perfumado will make you want to go to Cape Verde (or find out where the hell it is if you don’t know already). Do you get the impression that I like this cd? I love it and always will!

A voice has never moved me as much as cesaria has. Her voice is so seductive and passionate that it takes your mind to another place. Her other albums are great, but this is the best. a definite must hear and must have for any collection

Cesaria Evora – Cafe Atlantico

After nearly a decade of shuffling around barefoot from one festival stage to another, the Queen of Cape Verde finally went global. West Africa has long looked to Havana for inspiration, and this is a truly transatlantic brew. Smooth and milky at first taste, CAFE ATLANTICO has just enough bitterness to remind us that Evora’s roots lie in songs of yearning, loss, and hardship.

There’s a good variety of styles and influences here: a son straight out of Havana («Beijo de Longe») and an Angolan forro («Terezinha») are brave steps away from the plangent guitars and seductive melodies that have characterised her albums to date. And there are more than a few salient reminders too of the morna style that she has made her own, notably in «Vaquinha Mansa» and the stylish «Amor di Mundo.» The instrumental arrangements come courtesy of Jacques Morelenbaum and are as crafted as you’d expect. This is an album that would make a palm tree bend at the knees and long for summer. Why wait? Kick off your shoes and shuffle.

CAFE ATLANTICO was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best World Music Album.

The glorious Cafe Atlantico finds Cesaria Evora venturing into more Latin American musical landscapes, as opposed to Portuguese, which dominated her previous albums. Evora draws from traditional Cuban and Brazilian music to mesmerizing effect. The album is also a tribute to her home town of Mindelo, on the Cape Verdean island of Sao Vicente, which was once a busy port with sailors cruising between South America, the Caribbean, and Portugal. Therefore, the music is heartbreaking and nostalgic, warm and tragic all at once. The masterful «Carnaval de Sao Vicente» is one of the most joyous, bittersweet party songs ever put on wax (and was even issued as a maxi-single with fantastic remixes). «Roma Criola» is tragic, lonely, destitute, and always interesting, making for an undiscovered masterpiece of a ballad, and her rendition of the Spanish language standard «Maria Elena» is absolutely heartbreaking. The album evokes a moody elegance rarely found in modern music, from the sweeping opener «Flor Di Nha Esperanca» to the summery «Amor Di Mundo,» and the picture she paints of this cafe at the end of the world is a gorgeous, multi-colored, and emotion-stirring palate. This album is nothing short of world class and will be enjoyed by generations to come. ~ Jose Promis, All Music Guide
