Check out our Fall 2010 interview with Grace Evora, a pioneer in Cape Verdean Zouk music during his DVD release party in Newark, NJ hosted by the wonderful Marcy De Pina. Evora, former drummer singer from the band Livity, has had amazing successes in Europe and abroad in spreading his addictive zouk music. Watch to learn more about his thoughts on the music genre and why he thinks it has taken off around the globe.
From the Antilles to France, to Cape Verde and beyond, an international community has connected despite differences in race, customs, and language. They are driven by a shared passion: a love for zouk.
