Lusafrica announced the release of No Amá, the fourth album from Cape-Verdean artist Nancy Vieira. No Amá opens with Maylen, a very charming song written by Mario Lucio – poet, musician, historian of African Creole culture and current minister of culture in the government led by José Maria Pereira Neves.
Nancy Vieira is a rising star in Cape Verdean music. Her distinctive voice and delivery has brought the young singer critical acclaim as “the finest voice in Cape Verde” amongst the new generation. She performs a wide range of musical styles that unfold against a background of scrupulous classicism.
