Cruzamente is a Boston-based, eight piece all-female band. The band’s name, meaning “crossroads,” reflects not only the variety of Cape Verdean musical styles that Cruzamente performs, but also their rich instrumentation and the band members’ diverse nationalities and musical backgrounds. Castanhinha, Cruzamente’s latest release, abounds with strong vocals, fearless traditional grooves and a wonderfully rich Cape Verdean texture, from the traditional morna and coladeira to Portuguese fado to Brazilian modinha.
