To celebrate Cape Verdean Independence Day 2019, we sat with DJ Lefty to turn him + DJ Larry Love's now classic, 'CV House Party Volume 1' mix, into a playlist. These songs to many throughout the Cape Verdean diaspora served as soundtracks to family parties and just songs that continue to keep us connected to our roots while away from the motherland.
This is a very small taste of the many songs and artists that continue to define Cape Verdean culture, generation after generation. Due to lack of availability of particular records on major streaming platforms, we dug deep into YouTube to put this together. The Casubody Sound: Cape Verdean House Party Classics playlist is now available on YouTube.
