As I was playing with my new NPR app the other day, I listened to a couple podcasts from The World series and caught a story about Cesaria Evora's new album.  I love many of her songs, and was not surprised in the least that I really enjoyed the snippets I heard from her new album, "Nha Sentimento." Having just returned from Portugal a few months ago, the Portuguese language has now taken new meaning for me and I am able to enjoy Cesaria's music on a whole new level now.

I really enjoyed listening to Sentimento, and absolutely love the Arabic influence from her collaboration on this track with Egyptian musicians. I found out from the podcast that she had to go open heart surgery recently, and so querida Cesaria, esperamos ver-te de novo! Get well soon.
