The history of Cape Verde cannot be imagined without the music of this West African archipelago. Over the centuries, the former Portuguese colony served as a hub of the transatlantic slave trade, faced famines and fought for independence and democracy. The music processed and influenced this eventful history.

We wish to thank the University of Bern and our colleagues for these months of intense and fruitful work: your support in preparing and launching our project has been of invaluable importance! In particular, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to Prof Christian Windler, who has welcomed our research group at the Section of Modern History and who, on various occasions, has offered us his time and his advice. Our Bern period was rather short, but it will constitute the basis for future cooperation opportunities.
