World Music Wednesday: Tcheka

February 13 @ 8:30 pm

Likely to Sell Out

Event Navigation

Tcheka, born Manuel Lopes Andrade in a small, remote spot on the island of Santiago, Cape Verde, has created a unique and exquisite style that is a testament to the global influences he has embraced. His essence is impossible to grasp, let alone pin down – he is neither modernist, nor traditionalist, and his music resists any easy categorization or comparison. While referencing multiple genres from Cape Verde (batuku, funaná, finason, tabanka, morna and coladera), Tcheka’s music is also a busy intersection of Brazilian and African pop, traditional forms, folk, jazz, blues, rock, literature, anthropology and film.
