ONE-TIME OCCASION TO START THE BALL ROLLING WITH CARMEN SOUZA ON THE MARGARET ISLAND  BUDAPEST

 

Carmen Souza is rolling over to Budapest for the first time on her debut tour Kachupada, the new world music album’s material. Reserve your seat at the Margaret Island’S Open Air Stage and enjoy the hot summer night of Carmen Souza’s Soundscapes.

Friday, 8 p.m., August, 2. Margaret Island – Budapest

Carmen was born 27 years ago in Lisbon. She is a  Portuguese singer-songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist. Her family immigrated from Cape Verde. She was in her teens when already experienced the “Sodade” feeling of missing someone with the long absence of her father due to his work out on the sea. She grew up in a mixed environment of Creole, the Cape Verde dialect her parents spoke at home, and Portuguese, always surrounded by the capeverdean way of life. Carmen started singing professionally at the age of 17 in a Lusophone Gospel Choir and since then she participated in several projects from the road of Funky to Soul and from Jazz to World music.

Already released four albums, influenced on traditional African and Cape Verde rhythms like Batuke, Morna, Cola djon, with her jazz-’n-soul contemporary influences  brought a totally intimate and acoustic vibe, indeed different from the traditional environment of Cape Verdean sounds.

Just mentioning a couple of musicians  whom made a great influence on her personal style:  Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Etta Jones, Ella Fitzgerald and as for the men: Horace Silver, Keith Jarret, Theo Pas’cal and Luis Morais, Joe Zawinul … but thanks to Theo Pas’cal, her producer and mentor and one of the best bass players in Portugal was the one who discover her talent and introduce her to the land of Jazz, Fusion and other contemporary sounds that really influenced her a lot.

Those individuals who are in the house on rooted jazz music needn’t have to introduce the band, but for those who ain’t too familiar with them can describe them in seven words: ”Remarkable, splendid performers in the current jazzville!”

So it’s now up to you rollinginbudapest out to the Margaret Island on this coming Friday, August, 2. to see and hear a slice of music which reflects the Cape Verde sound, yet bringing to it a superb evolution by Carmen Souza – vocals, guitar, Theo Pas’cal – bass guitar, double bass, Filipe Melo – piano, Kacomanolis Elias – drums, percussion.
