Concert performed by Carmen Souza & The Silver Messengers on the Ploiești Jazz Festival stage, 2019 edition.
Carmen Souza was born in Lisbon to a Christian family from Cape Verde. Very early, he experienced the feeling of “Sodade” (missing someone) through his father’s long absence due to his work at sea. She grew up in a mixed environment of Creole, the Cape Verdean dialect her parents spoke at home, and Portuguese, always surrounded by the Cape Verdean way of life. Theo Pascal, her producer and mentor and one of the best bass players in Portugal, discovered her talent and introduced jazz and other contemporary genres to Carmen, which significantly influenced her musical development. Carmen Souza has been touring extensively around the world since 2005 and has performed at festivals such as The North Sea Jazz Festival, Leverkusener Jazztage, San Francisco Jazz Festival and many more. Her first concerts in Cape Verde received great reviews from the press and the audience, and everyone recognized her special and unique place in music culture. In 2013, Carmen Souza won the title of Best Female Singer with the album “Kachupada” at the “Grammy” – Cabo Verde Music Awards 2013. Without a doubt, she is a true world musical force and one of the most sought after singers of jazz in Europe, as someone said: Carmen Souza does not have to decide whether her music is jazz or world music. Her style is as unique as it is compelling, and her Cape Verdean roots as evident as her desire to create a new language under the “World Jazz” label.
