CAPE VERDEAN SINGER NANCY VIERIA!







Ask her and she'll tell you that she's proud to be from Africa.
Nancy was born in Mozambic and returned a few years later to Cap Vert, her parent's land .
Her childhood memories include playing outside her house with her girlfriends , singing in choir not knowing that one day she would become a professional singer.
When she moved to Portugal in her teens , she kept singing as a hobby with her friends .
It was only in 1995 that she seriously considered a musical career. She entered a local contest, won , and recorded "Nos Raca".
That record was her first hit, her people in Cap Verde and abroad embraced it and thus began her musical successful voyage.

On her latest album "Lus" she plays with local sonorities such as Funana, Morna, Batuque and mixes it with samba, bossa nova and other sounds.

I was listening to 'Lus'. Nancy has such a pretty voice & such a stage presence, she's so in tune to her band & her audience. :) Happy New Year!
