I was always vaguely familiar with Cesaria Evora having grown up in Russia where she was, for some time, quite well known. A number of her songs were major hits; "Besame mucho" was even used in an Oscar-winning film "Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears." But it's only as an adult that I was able to fully appreciate this brilliant singer who brings an amazing amount of soul and honesty to her singing. Think Ella Fitzgerald and Judy Holiday, albeit Evora sings a different style of music. This collection, featuring some of her best known hits, is a must have. Just sit back and let it roll over you.

From what I know of diva Cesaria's output (admittedly not a lot) this album seems a good overview. Regardless, the music and singing is beautiful and varied, with tracks like Sodade and Cabo Verde swooningly gorgeous.
Another highlight is Sangue de Beirona, which appears in a number of remixes on Cesaria's most recent single, Carnaval de Sao Vicente.
I'd highly recommend both the single and album.

If you want to have one album from Cesaria Evora, it's got to be this.... Probably her best selection.... Highly recommended!

A MUST HAVE CD Oct. 17 2005
By Constantinos V. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent collection of songs. I have heard it many times and I like the swings it has from slow, sad songs to fast paced ones. I discovered this cd in down-town Athens. I was going to work and every morning out of a cd shop Cesaria's voice was coming out. This was going on for almost three months. One morning, as if I were "hypnotized", I went in and I inquired about it. At first I was surprised with the looks of the bare foot diva (nothing like today's glistering pop-artists). This is a further proof though that the success of this artist is not based on the looks but on the spontaneous, unique way of singing. I like every single song in this CD and I think it is the ONE that someone has to bye from Cesaria's music.
