São Vicente: Gabriela Mendes and Morgadinho share stage to “celebrate” traditional Cabo Verdean music

Mindelo, Aug 28 (Inforpress) – Artists Gabriela Mendes and Morgadinho share the stage, this Thursday in Mindelo, in a show designed by Gabriela Mendes herself to “celebrate” traditional Cabo Verdean music that she believes is “losing ground” in Cabo Verde.

This “encounter of generations”, expression that gives title to the show, as she said to Inforpress, appears like something idealized “long ago”.

“Since I was a child I always had this dream of sharing the stage with Morgadinho, who is an icon of traditional Cabo Verdean music”, told Gabriela Mendes, for whom “it will be the greatest pleasure to sing alongside a man as Morgadinho.”

Thus, a “dream” that until now had not come true due to difficulties of agenda of the two artists and by Morgadinho residing in France, but which now, she added, may be possible since both are in Mindelo.
