Portuguese singer Lura comes to Millennium Park's Pritzker Pavilion this Thursday at 6:30 PM. Peter Margasak writes: "On the elegant new Eclipse (Four Quarters), Portuguese singer Lura expands her survey of traditional music from Cape Verde, the land of her immigrant parents: in addition to upbeat genres like batuku and funana, where she already shines, she tackles morna, the sorrowful ballad style made famous by the legendary Cesaria Evora, and proves herself a match for it. More than ever her sound is ecumenical, contemporary, and accessible." Chiwoniso opens.
