Description :

Vocal artist Candida Rose captivates audiences with the golden aura of her radiant presence and stirs them with a uniquely compelling voice that combines the overtones and undertones of jazz, rhythm and blues, and gospel with the right touch of Cape Verdean and Brazilian spice. Her debut CD, entitled KabuMerikana: The Sum of Me, combines her Cape Verdean musical roots with her American influences to bring a fresh new take on world/jazz music which she calls “KabuJazz”. Her concert with a five-member ensemble will feature standards such as “Afro Blue,” “Sodade,” and “The Girl from Ipanema.”
