Calado não dá

You can't live with your mouth shut

João Nicolau

Mano Mendi lives on the Island of Santiago, Cape Verde. He’s the last cimboa player, a sort of one-string violin used to accompany the traditional batuque dances, banned by the church and the former colonial power for being considered too sexual in nature. A documentary about the revival of an (indeed very) sexy culture.
