A special episode of all Cabo Verde music coming to us via Paris, France through the DJ Rackham Le Groove. Here is his words on today’s episode:
The mix focuses on Cabo Verde music and spans from the early 70’s to the 00’s. It is composed as a journey within a wide range of typical genres from the island, like coladera, morna, or funana, but also pop, reggae and funk.
It started smoothly but escalate step by step to fast paced track, some of which are tested and approved on the dancefloor.. For those who can keep up with the pace!
((Funny (or not), I had an idea of an all cabo verde mix because I started dating a girl from cabo verde 2 months ago and i always have been a huge fan of the music, I have a wide collection of vinyl from cabo verde.. She dumped me yesterday, hahaha (true story))
