The music of Cape Verde draws upon the islands' pungent blend of trade route cultures. As a young singer carrying on this unique musical tradition, Lura brings a streetwise, urban sensuality to her sound that embraces French afro-pop, Brazilian rhythms, and earthy, traditional music. Lura has been described as "the most dynamic performer in world music today" by the Times of London. Co-presented with the Cape Verdean Student Association.
