    She was a great singer, and her music lives on. 
    I work at a place where we have listened to her regularly (specifically “Cafe Atlantico”)for many years.  I found her voice to be warm and inviting.

    Aww, man.  What a bummer of a way to end the day.  I, too, was lucky enough to see her live maybe a dozen years ago.  It was a wonderful show all the way around– the musicians with her were phenomenal, she was so charming, and though it sounds totally corndog, it was a genuinely communal experience.  I’ve seen more great live shows than any one person has a right to in a single lifetime.  But I can only think of two or three that matched the sense of rapture the entire audience felt that night.

    Just a quick note to say that Cesária Évora didn’t sing in Portuguese but in Cape-Verdean Creole…

    This has been a terrible year. 
    Evora, Hitchens, Havel.

    The tragedy isn’t in having died; this is someting that can’t really be helped.  The tragedy is in not having lived.

    Cesaria Evora truly lived.  And she was loved and she died knowing she was loved all around the world.  It’s not all bad.
