Auteur Reporter – Vol 4 – The Boa Vista Social Club

Charlotte aka DJ Chaka Kant is London Fields Radio's resident roving reporter out and about getting the low down on all things music, arts and the like. Culture vulturing it up round East London and beyond - with oodles of interviews and music to top it off.

This month, Charlotte goes further afield and brings back live recordings of the music of Boa Vista island in Cape Verde - the Portuguese-Creole speaking tropical archipelago off the west coast of Africa. Jazz singer and Cape Verdean music fan, Laura Yogasundram joins Charlotte to share some her favourite musicians and translate some of the more interesting lyrics. So relax and enjoy, as they say in Cape Verde - No Stress!

I recently spent a week in Boa Vista (Sal Rei) and Santiago (Piedra Bajo) but sadly didn't hear any live music at all! I'd love to know where you heard this music as I'm hoping to go back - wonderful place - probably to Mindelo but also back to Sal Rei. Any info gratefully lapped up! Great show! Hackneygrandma.
