Cesaria Evora, 1941-2011: R.I.P.

Kind of unnoticed in the roll call of recent deaths is that of Cape Verde Islands singer Cesaria Evoria, who has apparently succumbed to hypertension and what used to be called emphysema. She passed away on Saturday. The BBC has a video report here.

I liked her music, myself, although I only discovered her a few years ago.
