Okay Kalamu…you might’ve resisted the urge to go on and on about Sara…but the jukebox selection says differently. Thanks for exposing me to a limited discographyof SARA TAVARES…as in 9 of the 14 songs in the jukebos are hers. 🙂

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, for us folks she is a BOL in music. She is part Tracy Chapman, part Sade, part Alycia Keys, part Tina Marie…but still All SARA TAVARES. I’m saying that and I don’t even know Portuguese. I like all of the tracks that were selected. However, “Deus Ajude A Todos” and “Balance” are my favorites.

Kalamu,
Nice article, glad to see some of my peeps get some shine. Aquick note on some of your translations. The portuguese word for ‘moon’ is Luna, not ‘Lua’, and ‘Mi Ma Bo’ is Kriolu and difficult to translate into English, but it does not mean ‘Me and You’, literally it would be ‘me but you’ and colloquially probably more like ‘me without you’ or ‘Me not you’.

Hell! I don’t need to know Portugese (although I do know a little bit having gone to university in Providence, RI) I just need to get this sister’s CD ASAP. And Kalamu – I know what you’re feeling about this lady, she’s the spitting image of someone I once loved very, very much.

Balance in nothing like Mi Ma Bo. It seems to be a bit more sincere and mellow. It was described as a cradling song for adults. It’s very personal and sincere. To some it might sound melancholic but it’s not. It’s celebratory and hopeful. Personally my favourite track is Dam Bo.

PS: Moon in Portuguese is “Lua” and not “Luna”. Luna is Spanish 😉 thought I’d add that.

Get the album!!!

Best CD I’ve bought in years. Sara’s Balance is a gem. I went to the record store looking for an artist by the name "Kuku". And I came out with two CD’s. Balance and Kuku’s Unexpected Pleasures. both CDs are now my music of choice either at home, on the road or in the office.

Just had to go out and buy ‘Balance’ after listening to the title track… What a wonderful earthy Sara has. I will now have to find all her past albums. I would also love a an English translation of the lyrics on balance.
I am in love with the voice!!

I need to disagree with one statement in your blog. “It’s immediately striking how much Sara sounds like Joy Denalane. ”

Just nje!
