Elida Almeida, one of the greatest voices in Cape Verdean music today, is considered by many to be the leader of the country's new musical generation.
Di Londji is the singer-songwriter's fourth studio album, released on 27 January 2023 on the Lusafrica label.
Known for the maturity, talent and generosity of her writing and performing, Elida Almeida came to the world's attention in 2014, the year she was discovered by producer José da Silva - also responsible for introducing Cesária Évora. Eight years after her debut, Elida Almeida takes stock of how far she's come. That's why she calls her fourth album "Di Lonji", "From afar".
The choice of the name Di Londji is not an innocent one: it paints a portrait of Elida, her essence and her journey, where she comes from geographically, from her homeland in Cape Verde to the path of realising her dreams, of achieving her goals, overcoming all barriers.
The album represents this intense and persistent journey, with all the factors that have made it difficult and that have been overcome, such as stereotypes and the search for approval.
Duration of the performance : 2 hours
