Club Sodade (2003)

Details Release Date: Nov 25, 2003; Lead Performance: Cesaria Evora

The Cape Verdean songstress entrusted her melancholic folk songs to dance remixers like Detroit techno whiz Carl Craig and jungle pioneers 4hero, and they've produced surprisingly warm electro treatments. Evora's enchanting, throaty alto is wisely kept the main attraction, while the lush downbeat and house arrangements add a celebratory twist (as in Craig's rapturous take on ''Angola'') to her subdued oeuvre.
