Reseña de álbum

Lura was born in Lisbon of Cape Verdean parents, and her music is more reflective of the island nation that became independent in the year of her birth than it is of Portugal. On Eclipse, she mixes styles from her islands, from Europe, and from Africa into a smooth hybrid style. The basic instrumentation consists of acoustic guitars, an electric bass, and multiple percussion instruments, plus the occasional violin and accordion.

Singing songs written by a variety of songwriters (she herself contributes to a single tune), she evokes various romantic situations and also paints a portrait of rural, poor, island life, with its farmers and fishermen and families.

Eclipse is a varied and melodic collection of songs by a talented singer steeped in the tradition of her island heritage, yet alive to contemporary influences.
