Winner of Radio France International’s Prix Découvertes in 2015, Elida Almeida is a fresh new Cape Verdean voice on the world music scene. Born on the island of Santiago and raised on Maio, she developed her vocal techniques with simple church singing while she helped her mother sell fruits and vegetables at local markets. A determined woman and committed champion of the right to education, Almeida left the rural world to write her love and protest songs. Blending Cape Verdean beats with warm vocals and a fiery joie de vivre, Almeida has become a celebrated presence at world music venues across Europe, Africa, and North America.

 

Presented in collaboration with The Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Bureau Export, and the France Rocks Festival
