Ten years ago, in November 2010 Lusafrica releases “Cesaria Evora &”, a compilation of the most beautiful duets she recorded between 1993 and 2010, with Marisa Monte, Compay Segundo, Salif Keita, Caetano Veloso, Bernard Lavilliers, Adriano Celentano, and many others including Lura for the tracks “Moda Bô”.

"As a child, I dreamed of being like you / Singing on stage in divine light, like you / Often in my teens in front of the mirror / I used a pretend microphone to sing like you / I want to sing like you” sings Lura to Cesaria, who replies to her “In my time, I’ve met people and seen the world / Achieved my life’s dream, singing of Cape Verde, singing of my land / I want to share my experience with everyone / I want to share the history of a people with the world / The history of a life”.

Remember, on 15 November 1991, the album “Mar Azul” is released.
A month later, a concert is organized on December 14th at the New Morning in Paris.
The journalist Veronique Mortaigne writes in Le Monde: “Cesaria Evora, a lively fifty-year-old, sings morna with mischievous devotion... (she) belongs to the world nobility of bar singers”.

With this album and this concert, the legend has begun to take shape...
