Watch out for Mayra. Mayra Andrade is making her own international imprint with her new release, "Storia Storia." This exquisitely produced music merges her connections with Cape Verde, Brasil, Cuba, and France. Through beautiful arrangements and an attractive synthesis of musical cultures, she finds her niche in this vast sea of world music. Mayra's voice blends with the dreamy sounds provided by an awesome cast of musicians. It is particularly nice to hear the talent of Cape Verdean, multi-instrumentalist, Kim Alves. Special tracks for me include, "Tchapu Na Bandera," "Seu," and "Koniensa." This is music that encourages and nourishes and this is a young singer who has already mastered the powerful art of musical interpretation. Mayra is on her way.
