Cape Verde

– Island Hopping & Kriol Jazz Festival –

Join Away To Africa on this Tour centred around The Kriol Jazz Festival, a fusion of music from different origins all on one stage. Discover a selection of the best artists from the creole world for a program based upon exchanging as much on a musical level as on a human level.

The Festival’s main objective is to promote the Creole-inspired music from all the islands, whether in the Caribbean, Indian Ocean, Cabo Verde, Europe or Africa, the cradle of Creole.

Also get the opportunity to explore and enjoy The Cape Verde islands, a place of great contrasts, with each of the islands offering a different experience.

You will start with Santiago, the largest island in the archipelago and home to Cape Verde’s capital, Praia. Santiago is an island rich in history, where green valleys and lush plantations meet rugged mountains and bustling African towns. The country’s old capital, Cidade Velha, was the first city to be built by Europeans in West Africa, and today is a registered UNESCO World Heritage Site, having once acted as the main slave trading point between Africa, Europe and America.

Then head to Sal, which can only be described as a beach lover’s paradise, with golden sandy beaches sinking into azure waters, windows into the island’s past and some truly spectacular natural phenomena to admire.
