This music video was filmed entirely in my hometown of New Bedford, Massachusetts. This is where I was born and the various locations, as well
as my outfits, all have a very special meaning to me. This video was produced to showcase the single, "Kabu Verde, Un Dia" from my debut CD.
Shot in 1 day, it features my old neighborhood, as well as some of the Cape Verdean clubs I have performed in. The ship that is featured in the video is the "Ernestina" and she holds a very special place in the hearts of all Cape Verdeans. It was on this small schooner, that many of the island's people
left on a voyage to America with dreams of starting a better life. New Bedford is home to the largest Cape Verdean community in America.
