Cesária Évora was one of the genre’s best-known interpreters.

Morna, traditional music and dance from Cape Verde, was approved by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Cape Verdean singer Cesária Évora (1941-2011) was one of the best-known performers of the genre and was dubbed “the queen of Morna”.

The decision should be formally adopted by UNESCO in December at a ceremony in Colombia.
