Two young women making an enormous impact on the musical legacies of their homelands, Cape Verdean Lucibela and Brazilian Xênia França honor the roots of their cultures while blending traditional percussion with electronica, jazz, and R&B. Lucibela’s magnificent voice yields an emotional power with breathtaking ease. Franca’s songs speak to female empowerment, especially among black women, lifting up messages of love, pride, and transcendence.
