Have just come out of a concert by Lura, the Cape Verdean singer but the place was half empty! Please tell everyone that if they have the chance to see her she is not to be missed. Great singer, great band, great night!

Cheers and keep up the good work!

Having loved Mayra Andrade at the Purcell Rooms on Sunday, I missed fellow Cape Verdean singer Lura at the Union Chapel - did anyone go, any reports?

I missed it too I'm afraid.

I was going to be doing a double review of the two gigs for the IoS, but it was cancelled at the last minute. I didn't feel I needed two nights of the sweet longing of Cape Verdian souls, on the trot, and as I haven't been as impressed by Lura's recorded work as I have been by Mayra's debut, I decided to stay at home. I'm now slightly regretting I didn't go.

I'll definitely catch her next time.
