Photographer's Note

This is the Municipal School of Music in Mindelo city, São Vicente Island, Cape Verde. I would say the Cape-Verdeans don't need a music school, since they are such a naturally musical people. But OK, it's great that they keep and improve their standards of proficiency. They are not resting on laurels. The best example of Cape Verde's musical soul is Cesária Évora (my next post).
In the workshop there is a better view of the mural at right side of the building.
A note about the street paving. A couple of years ago the major streets of Mindelo downtown got a new surface: asphalt over the old cobblestones. Other streets still display the cobblestones, such as that minor street at left and the roads out of town (like the road to Baía das Gatas).
