I should start by saying that this is one of my favorite videos of all time…
Ave Cesaria by Stromae
“Et à vie Cesaria, et à la mort aussi…Obrigado, tu embrigadas des millions de soldats dans ta patrie”
…it just complements the song so well. This song was written by Stromae in order to celebrate a musical great, a Cape Verdean, Cesária Évora. Fun fact: Stromae’s video for Ave Cesaria is footage from a real family function. For all those who don’t speak French, don’t fret, there are english subtitles!
This is the perfect song to get your morning started as the rhythm instantly gets your feet moving and the beautiful lyrics make you want to sing along. Watching the video and listening to the song instantly transports you to this dance party.
Oh Sodade…. Sadadi di nha Cesaria!
