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.

"If tracks from this album don't get played on day time radio 2 there ought to be a public inquiry"

Charlie Gillett Observer Music Magazine

"Andrade manages the balance of African earthiness and Portuguese melodic lilt a touch better than either of her slightly older rivals, eschewing overtly modern elements in favour of a gently syncopated, all-acoustic feel. A touch of the contemporary arrives organically through her vocal persona, which manages to embody simultaneously freshness and youth and a deliciously languid world-weariness."

Mark Hudson The Daily Telegraph
