Cape Verdean star comes to London

Mayra Andrade will not only be performing in London on September 28th but she will also be releasing her new album on Sept 24th – With Senegal on one side and Brazil on the other, the islands of Cape Verde have an astoundingly rich musical culture and new singers are not uncommon. Many are compared to each other, but only one is compared to Cesaria. Sterns Music are proud to release the stunning, debut album Navega from that very person: Ms. Mayra Andrade.

Venue – Barbican

Picked as the opening act for Cesaria Evora, asked to record with Aznavour, Chico Buarque and Lenine, the word was definitely out on Mayra Andrade before she got even her first sniff of a record deal. Still only 22, this absurdly talented singer, songwriter and performer has taken Europe by storm with her debut album: Navega.

A beautiful, amazingly mature voice with subtle, addictive songs that have immediate impact yet reveal their depths the more you listen, are all pulled together in a sensitive production by Jacques Ehrhart, producer for, among others, Camille. Is it any wonder that Mayra has been acclaimed across continental Europe? Among many accolades she was most recently awarded the prestigious Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik (German Record Critics Award), previously received by Mariza, and currently has a touring schedule that would make strong men weak.
