"Juntas somos mais Fortes"

Fortes means strong (plural) in Portuguese and French. Growing up my parents always insisted I had to be Fortes which happens to be one of my two family names. I didn't know how or why I needed to be strong but as you grow older you realize life is unpredictable, filled with life lessons that will require you to be Fortes.

Capeverdean women are strong and so are our cultural cousines from the Dom Tom aka French Antilles. Our differences bring us to common ground while our differences make us travel. Zouk & Compa music made me travel all the way to Martinique, Guadeloupe and Guyane growing up and made me Fortes without knowing.

Music is the language of the heART. You don't need to understand the words to feel it just like I did with the song Fanm Fo. In Cabo Verde my cousin would play this song all the time and it was love at first beat! I went to the music store and bought the whole album just for that one song Fanm Fo. Little did I know that this zouk song was a beautiful homage to all island/caribbean women who are beautiful and Fo(rtes).
