Biography

Born in Praia, Santiago—the capital of the unspoiled islands off the coast of West Africa— this songstress’ Cape Verde prides itself on its African, Portuguese, Mediterranean, and Latin-American customs and traditions. It is no wonder that Anané has been blessed with a deep connection to her own rich history and an immeasurable global understanding of music. “My aunts and uncles were known as the Xalinos They made most of the musical instruments on the island, such as guitars, violins, and the uncommon Cavaqinho, a small four-string guitar”, explains Anané. On the weekends, her family would host the traditional Serenada, a gathering of people who sang and danced to the music of the island. It was during this time in her childhood that Anané realized the beginnings of her extraordinary vocal prowess.

After immigrating to Rhode Island with her family, Anané was able to expand on her musical interests from the island sounds of Cape Verde to the truly diverse and soulful sounds of America. She has been musically influenced by the artists she grew up listening to, including a wide range of classic and contemporary vocalists such as: Gal Costa, Tito Paris, Sade, and Jill Scott. “Jill Scott is my greatest inspiration, musically and lyrically. She is just an all around real woman,” professes the singer/songwriter. As a result, she has been able to enjoy an eclectic legacy of performers who continually not only impact their listeners but other artists as well, over time.
