Portugal's Sara Tavares flecks her Cape Verdean songs with music from far-off Brazil, creating the summery sound of sand, sea and sun. Anyone looking for an upbeat Cesaria Evora will immediately want to tune in, but it's hard to imagine any open-minded listener who won't be captivated by Tavares; this is honest, feel-good music.
