CAPE VERDE

Culture

Cape Verdean social and cultural patterns are similar to those of rural Portugal .

 Football (Futebol) games and church activities are typical sources of social interaction and entertainment.

 The traditional walk around the
praça (town square) to meet friends is practised regularly in Cape Verde towns.

 In towns with electricity, television is available on two channels (Cape Verdean and Portuguese).

Cape Verde music incorporates Portuguese, Caribbean, and Brazilian influences.

 Cape Verde's quintessential national music is the morna, a melancholy and lyrical song form typically sung in Cape Verdean Creole. 

The most popular music genre after morna is the coladeira followed by funaná and batuque music. 

Amongst the most worldwide known Cape Verdean singers, are the singers Ildo Lobo, Nelson Freitas and Cesária Évora whose songs became a hallmark of the country and its culture. 

There are also well known artists born to Cape Verdean parents who excelled themselves in the international music scene. 

Amongst these artists are jazz pianist Horace Silver, Duke Ellington's saxophonist Paul Gonsalves, Teófilo Chantre, Paul Pena, the Tavares brothers and singer Lura.

Dance forms include the soft dance morna, the extreme sensuality of coladeira including the modernized version called Cabo Love (similar to the zouk from Guadeloupe), the Funaná (a sensual mixed Portuguese and African dance), and the Batuque dance.

Cape Verdean literature is one of the richest of Lusophone Africa. 

Famous poets include Paulino Vieira, Manuel de Novas, Sergio Frusoni, Eugénio Tavares, and B. Léza, and famous authors include Baltasar Lopes da Silva, António Aurélio Gonçalves, Manuel Lopes, Orlanda Amarílis, Henrique Teixeira de Sousa, Arménio Vieira, Kaubverdianu Dambará, Dr. Azágua, and Germano Almeida.  LINK
