MORABEZA & MOUNT-FACE [Cabo Verde]

The legend says that when God was about to finish his task of creating the world, he shook his hands to clean some dust particles. It seems that ten of these small grains of dust landed off the Western Coast of Africa, and turned into ten beautiful islands. This archipelago is Cabo Verde, where the music diva Cesária Évora was born. We are at her birthday island, São Vicente...

Like Rio de Janeiro has its Sugar Loaf Hill, and Gibraltar its Rock, São Vicente also has its peculiar monolith, it is called "Monte Cara", literally the Face-Mount. Check the series below and find out the rocky face!
(find below an interview with one of the most famous musician of São Vicente, Tito Paris)
