This November, the Virginia Folklife Program will be returning to Cape Verde, a musically and culturally rich island nature off the coast of West Africa, for another musical exchange. Two of last year’s participants, Virginian multi-instrumentalist Danny Knicely and Cape Verdean master musician Zerui Depina, will be joined for this performance by Aimee Curl and Jared Pool, who will be joining Danny and Ze in Cape Verde this year as well. This is a concert not to be missed.

Frankie Centeio listens as Zerui Depina plays the cavaquinho with Danny Knicely on fiddle in Ch‹ das Calderas, Fogo, in Cabo Verde on 11/5/16.
