Carmen Souza and her band energized a full house at the first of two evening shows at The Regattabar in Cambridge, Mass. Born in Portugal and infused with Cape Verdean and African rhythms, Carmen and her band delivered a strong set with plenty of space for band solos.
Carmen is touring behind her new CD, Kachupada. Her band (drum, piano and bass) is strong on every instrument and showed a real zest for getting rhythms into the audience. Catch her on tour and check out her music, too.
