Bau Raquel Cape Verdean Melancholy

Born on the Cape Verdean island of Sao Vicente, Rufino Almeida (aka Bau, which is the Portuguese word for box) was raised by a professional luthier who taught him both to build and to play the guitar, the violin, and an indigenous four-stringed instrument called the cavaquinho, all of which he mastered at a young age. During his tenure as musical director for singer Cesaria Evora in the 1990s, Almeida found time to record several albums of his own, highlights of which are compiled on Cape Verdean Melancholy for the U.S. market to coincide with the release of the Pedro Almodovar film Talk to Her (which features the album's lead track, "Raquel," in its soundtrack).
