This stirring evening features a sublime set of traditional Cape Verdean songs fused with jazz sensibilities performed by the polyglot vocalist Kavita Shah and some of Cape Verde’s most renowned musicians. Shah is an award-winning vocalist, composer, researcher, and educator who makes work in deep engagement with the jazz tradition, while also addressing and advancing its global sensibilities. A lifelong New Yorker of Indian origin hailed for possessing an “amazing dexterity for musical languages” (NPR), Shah incorporates her ethnographic research on Brazilian, West African, and Indian musical traditions into her original repertoire. In September 2023, after seven years of immersing in the traditional mornas and coladeiras of her idol Cesária Évora on the Atlantic island of São Vicente with Évora's former musical director and virtuoso guitarist Bau, Shah released her latest album Cape Verdean Blues (Folkalist Records).

This performance is part of the Art of Performance Subscription Series now on sale.
