Americo Brito

Americo Brito Fado Morna Special

Undergound hero and former Radio DJ Americo Brito is world-famous in Rotterdam and beyond for his major role in putting Cape Verdean music, and especially funana, on the map in the Netherlands. A walking encyclopaedia with great musical talent and range. In recent years, he has played in the picture with the band Arp Frique & Family.

For the occasion, Americo Brito plays in the West End Theater an intimate tribute to the morna, the Cape Verdean life song, related to the Portuguese fado, with all the deeply lived saudade, melancholy, love sorrow and heartbreak that comes with it. Americo Brito plays well-known songs by himself but also by, among others, morna great Cesária Évora.
