RIP Cesária Évora

Never heard of her until she died.  But she was very good.

Cesária Évora, Grammy-Winning Cape Verdean Singer, Has Died : The Record : NPR:

Évora was perhaps the most widely known performer of morna, a style of music indigenous to Cape Verde. She began singing professionally when she was just a teenager — the only woman in a group that performed all over the islands — but she did not gain international attention until the late 1980s. In 2004, Évora won a Grammy for her album Voz d'Amor.
