Foreign Tunes

If you like foreign tunes, you might find these CDs quite enjoyable.

"Cape Verde," which is a compilation from various artists from Cape Verde. I like track #3, Pays Sol, sings by Nana Matias. Her voice is hauntingly beautiful. I can't seem to find info on her anywhere. How they found her for this "Cape Verde" project is a mystery to me.

"Voz D' Amor" by Cesaria Evora. She is undoubtedly the queen of Cape Verdean music. She is well known in Europe.

"Nha Mundo" is, I am not sure, Maria de Barros' first album. Though grew up in the US, her music is very much Cape Verdean. Her voice is sweet to the ears.

"Attraction" by Paris Combo, a Parisian swing band's third album. Great party music. I like track 6 and 7 a lot.

So there you have it (sorry, I can't write reviews), give these CDs a try.

I was hurrying to get this posting done (so I could get some shut-eye) when I realized that it's Yom Kippur (Jewish holiday) tomorrow and I don't have to go to work. Yes, you've guessed it--I am not Jewish but my boss is. He let us have a day off. Woo hoo! I love it. What should I do tomorrow? Maybe I'll go to the music store. I need to add some more tunes to my iPod. When the internet cable is hooked up, I'll search for more exotic sounds on iTunes store. I can't do it right now because I still have dial-up. Yes, I know, I am behind the times. My friends ridicule me non-stop. I think I developed an eating disorder as result of this. More on my pathetic life later.
