“Sodade” means nostalgia, the never ending feeling of homesickness that only someone who’s not sure about returning to their home can understand. In this traditional piece from Cabo Verde, I decided to use my naked voice through the use of a loop station. By layering rhythms and harmonies with my voice, I present to the audience a pure and honest introspection into the fragility of my spirit creating a vehicle into my feelings of sodade to help remind people that we are not “legal” or “illegal aliens”, but humans. Just humans.
