Vestido De Amor
Vestido de Amor, the tenth studio album by Brazilian singersongwriter Chico Cesar, digs deeper into the subject of Pan-Africanism, this time from the point of view of the diaspora. In 1996, the singer-songwriter born in Catol do Rocha, in the desert area of Paraba State, composed Mama Africa, an ode to the black woman, a single mother with dirty hands and a big heart. In 2022, in this global society where the question of cultural appropriation is so acute, it seems obvious that Africa has fed all the cultural trends, but in turn has been nourished by them. Thus, Chico Cesar invited two great personalities of African music to contribute to Vestido de Amor: Salif Keita and Ray Lema.
