Indeed, Cape Verde was partly made famous by Cesaria Evora, nicknamed the “Barefoot Diva”, Cesaria is considered as the “Queen of Morna”, Morna being a music genre that originates from the Creole culture in Cape Verde. She first became famous in 1988 after the release of her album “La Diva aux pieds nus”. Her house, in Mindelo, has now become a museum.
