mario_lucioThis collections takes its inspiration from Saudade, an old Portuguese word that expresses longing and the melancholy of separation. It has been the theme of countless songs across the Portuguese speaking world.

One of the most famous songs called Saudade is by Cape Verde’s legendary singer Cesaria Evora. As well as mining the music of Cape Verde, we have traveled across the rest of the Lusophone world, including  Angola, Brazil, Portugal, and Guinea-Bissau, finding wistful melodies that express both sadness and beauty.
