Cabo Verde and its Music – a Virtual Museum: an online space that proposes a dive into the musical universe of Cape Verde
The project "Cabo Verde and its Music – a virtual museum" arises following my book Cabo Verde and its Music – a Dictionary of Personalities, which was published in 2016 and traces the biographies and discographies of musicians, singers, and other personalities who make up the musical universe of Cabo Verde. Now, using material collected over a period of more than 20 years, the proposal is to create a virtual museum to share an extensive collection of information, which includes not just texts and photos, but also videos, press cuttings, posters for concerts, covers of discs and interviews among other kinds of documents. Many of these items require preparative technical work to permit them to be used in a virtual museum. To preserve memory by being able to tell its stories – this is the foundational idea from which Cabo Verde and its Music continues. And it counts on your support.
