Released:
Label: RCA Victor
Every Cesaria Evora album demands a kind of surrender -- a surrender to Cape Verde's languid, heat-soaked rhythms and the inherent melancholy of the morna style. Rogamar (literally, "pray to the sea") packs bittersweet longing into each song, with Teofilio Chantre's lyrics gently probing the island's conflicted relationship to the water that surrounds it.
