Information

Country:

Cape Verde

Bitori – the legend of Funana!

This is the forbidden music of Cape Verde – the exhilarating, refined yet raw infectious dance music ‘funana’ which was banned during the Portuguese rule.

It is rousing accordion music

Bitori is now nearly 80 years old and his live show still remains captivating and energetic.
