Pedrinho "Aleluia" (Dó Lá Si Discos, Portugal, 1979) VG+/VG+
"Killer African funk and highlife vibes with heavy Cuban and Funana influences.
At the time, late 70's, this Lp was one of the biggest successes from Cabo Verde music. Singer Pedrinho moved to Lisbon when he was 18 years old, and recorded this album, the first one of his career. Aleluia was produced in Rua de S.Bento, Lisbon, Portugal. This street was also where Pedrinho come to live when he arrived in Portugal, like the majority of the musicians and emigrants from the old African Portuguese colonies move at that time, to try a new luck. A big community grew here and these artists got the opportunity to record their own traditional music by the hands of local labels."
