Elida Almeida

BIOGRAPHY

Elida Almeida is a Cape Verdean female vocalist who won the Prix Découvertes RFI in 2015. She was born on February 15, 1993, in Pedra Badejo, on the island of Santiago. Lusafrica is her current label.

Elida has built a name for herself performing at world music venues in Europe, Africa, and North America despite growing up in a rural town of Kebrada and spending her formative years with some difficulties.

As a church singer, she honed her vocal talents. She also developed her musical culture while working on radio commentary.

Elida fled the rural environment to create love and empathy songs after becoming concerned about protecting access to education. On May 11, 2015, she launched her debut album, titled ‘Ora doci, Ora margos.’

She’s played at the 2015 Festival Musiques Métisses in Angoulême, France, the 2016 Cabo Verde Music Awards (CVMA) alongside Hélio Batalha, and the 10th edition of JazzKif, the Kinshasa Jazz Festival.

Elida Almeida has a high level of maturity, talent, and kindness. She expresses her African identity with a warm, silky voice that conveys tremendous exultation, flavouring her Cabo Verdean beats – batuque, funaná, coladera, and tabanka – with Latino vigor. Her vibrant personality and joy of life do little to detract from the societal criticism she delivers in her nostalgic pop songs.
