Release date: 20/09/2016

Barcode: 4260126061118

Catalog no.: AACD0000081

Item ID: 432708

A reissue of a 1997 masterpiece which many Cabo Verdeans
consider to be the best Funaná album ever made. It was recorded by a 59-year old accordion player named Victor Tavares, better know as Bitori. Halfway the 20th century Funaná was the most popular Cabo Verdean music style. However, since this music was strongly connected to the struggle for Cape Verdean independence, it was prohibited by the Portuguese colonial rulers, which is why Funaná seemed to have disappeared in the '60s and early '70s. However, after Cabo Verde achieved independence in '75, this type of music met with a revival, leading to several recordings of which this collection is the pinacle.
