“A stunning new talent” – Songlines

Direct from Cape Verde, Elida Almeida won huge acclaim for her 2015 debut album ‘Ora Doci Ora Margos’ and the lead single ‘Nta Konsigui’, which has racked up over 3 million YouTube views to date.

On her 2nd album, ‘Kebrada’, she asserts her African identity, seasoning her Cabo Verdean beats – batuque, funaná, coladera and tabanka – with Latino energy. Her fiery temperament and joie de vivre do nothing to undermine the social criticism she expresses in her nostalgic ballads tinged with pop.
