So Sensual I Missed Her, Mayra Andrade 'Navega'
From Cuba to Cape Verde to Europe, Mayra Andrade is a well traveled lady.
Her voice is as good if not greater than her looks.
Had I not read the liner notes for her album Navega, I could have placed her squarely as a Brazilian.
I might be behind the curve as her album was released in Europe in 2006 yet reached the US shores only in the Fall of 2008.
She got the BBC World Music Newcomer Award for 2008.
Get a taste of her sultry voice with the Live version of 'Lua' above...
