  • Maria de Barros is a singer most associated with Cape Verde, the land of her parents. However, she lived in Nouakchott and Rhode Island in her youth. She considers Cesária Évora to be her godmother and an inspiration. Her music thus has Morna influences, but she also has Latin or salsa influences. Besides Evora she is a fan of Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Willy Chirino, and Sting. She is also fluent and has recorded songs in several languages, including her native Portuguese, French, Spanish, German, and English. She went on tour in Europe, in 2008. That summer, she also performed in Princeton, New Jersey's Petronello Gardens.
