Portuguese singer of Cape Verdean descent Dino d’Santiago expertly bridges together the traditional Morna, Batuku and Funaná with contemporary sounds that create a truly refreshing yet timeless sound. With a number of superb records under his belt in ‘Eva’. ‘Mundu Nôbu’ and most recently ‘KRIOLA’, d’Santiago has continually pushed the boundaries with the aim to showcase these sounds to the world.
For his COLORS performance, Dino d’Santiago does that just that as he presents a contemporary take on Morna, the traditional Cape Verde genre made popular by Cesaria Evora. Opening with captivating vocals that heal and comfort instantly, the track progresses as more layers of instrumentation are added into the mix. Check out the spellbinding performance of ‘Morna’ which will be part of the deluxe release of d’Santiago’s ‘KRIOLA’ album (out this autumn) up top.
