Travelers to Cape Verde will be caught up in the same wistful emotions when listening to the soulful music that is an essential part of its local culture as when marveling at its dramatic island landscape. Swaying to a funaná with a glass of grogue in hand or letting a somber morna evoke feelings of longing and sorrow, visitors will find that music is as much a part of Cape Verde's identity as its beautiful panoramas.
