Tcheka songs Cape Verde's Tcheka continues to grow in stature as a singer, writer, and composer. It's been four years since his last release and he's used the time well, coming up with something deliciously complex and tasty for this new album. There's a sense of urgency about a song like "Fla Mantanhena," while the distorted electric guitar that closes "Moca de Classe" is a masterful touch, jarring but perfect in context. The local batuku rhythms still form the basis of his sounds, but he's begun working with more colors, drawing on flute and trumpet, with backing vocals used sparingly but to intense effect. Kudos to percussionist Fernando António Carlos, who does sterling work throughout, and to Tcheka's own arrangements, which are never cluttered but always manage to sound full. It's not vital to understand the Portuguese of the lyrics (the subject matter of each song is given in the booklet); Tcheka's expressive voice is all that's necessary, as with the deep sadness of "Madalena," where he sounds as if he could give the great Youssou N'Dour a run for his money -- his range is better than ever. He truly sounds like a mature artist these days, holding his Cape Verde heritage close but with a full blast of individuality. ~ Chris Nickson Recording information: Praia; Studio La Vila, Mindelo.

Nu Monda Nu Monda CD (2006)

Tcheka CD discography Singer/songwriter Tcheka might be from Cape Verde, but he defies comparison with other artists from the islands. There's a very African quality to his music, much of it based around the local rhythm of bataque, which originally developed to circumvent the ban of drums. But that doesn't define him. What he has to offer is completely individual, a sound that's his alone, passionate and at times quite frantic, as on "Djan Bedja," but also capable of a hypnotic tenderness, which he ably displays on "Talulu." Throughout, there's a strong rhythmic base to his music, much of which comes from his particular style of guitar playing (full marks too to lead guitarist Hernani Almeida, who provides some stunningly melodic solos and fills). The backing ...
