Praia Cape Verde Events

The Cape Verde Festival is held on Holy Day and includes drums and lively music, culminating in a huge party where people enjoy delicious traditional dishes prepared especially for the occasion. The fabulous festival in Boa Vista will take place in the town of Porto Alegre on the day of the Evangelist John. It is the most famous festival in Cape Verde and is held every year at the same time as the other major festivals in the country, such as St. Patrick's Day and St. George's Day.

The KJF has become a link with the Mayor of Praia, who is committed to promoting the festival. The Mindelo Carnival on the island of Sao Vicente is known for its electrifying atmosphere and tens of thousands of participants. It is interesting to see how the Cape Verdes are doing, because there are rumours of organised crime syndicates in the region, such as the Sicilian mafia, and because there is a common history between the two countries, it will be interesting for us all to see how they are doing. This is Carnival inspired by the Carnival in Brazil, and mixed with some traditional food from other countries with which we have a common history.

Chaw's role in Cape Verde underscores the growing Chinese involvement in crime syndicates elsewhere in Portugal's Africa, including in the war - torn and drug-infested - between Guinea and Bissau. There are an estimated 200 Chinese shops on the islands of Santiago and Sao Vicente, and this type of investment has continued in recent years, with the opening of a number of hotels and restaurants in the city of Praia, as well as the construction of new hotels, restaurants and hotel accommodation in other cities such as Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul and Rio de Janeiro.

Santiago was one of the first Cape Verde islands to be settled and is a popular destination because there are many whaling vessels in the waters off Cape Verde. Already in 1810, whalers recruited crews from the islands of Brava and Fogo on whale ships. About 15 km away is Sao Vicente, known as the city of Praia, the first city in the world built by Europeans and where the colonization of all the Cape Verde Islands began.

Cape Verde was one of the first Portuguese colonies in Africa to have higher education schools, and a small minority received an education. Although it had a relatively small population of about 1,000 people, it was used to train colonial administrators to work in different parts of the Portuguese Empire.

Although Portuguese was the official language of Cape Verde, the Cape Verdes also spoke a unique Creole dialect. Although Portuguese was the official language, the Creole language of Cape Verde, Kriolu, became the most widely spoken language of the country during this period.

Portuguese is the most widely spoken language in Cape Verde and represents more than 80% of the total population of 2.5 million people. The tourism sector is also a major attraction, with most tourists coming from the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

It should be noted, however, that few countries have such a large number of statues in their capital. In Praia, a tall statue stands in the centre of the city, at the intersection of two main streets, the Gorgades and the Pico de Sao Paulo. According to Pliny the Elder, the Greek Xenophon and Lampsakos claimed that between what we now call Hesperu and Ceras there was a "Cape Verde Gorgade." This is the highest point of the Cape of Good Hope and is an old saying that "the Cape Verde Islands are the most beautiful and beautiful place in the world and also the only place on earth without a mountain."

It has become a festival of Cape Verde culture, attracting tens of thousands of people, and is now involved in events such as music festivals, concerts, cultural events and cultural festivals. The Praia Kriol Jazz Festival is celebrated every year to promote Creole music - inspired music from around the world. Artists such as the Grammy-winning singer, singer, songwriter, pianist and guitarist have been invited, as well as musicians from the United States, Canada, Brazil, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Australia and other countries.

The event was founded in 1984 by a group of people who wanted to create an opportunity to meet and exchange musical ideas and to create solidarity and peace in Cape Verde.

The Portuguese in Cape Verde held a referendum in 1973, in which only those who were Portuguese citizens were allowed to vote. The PAIGC was split into two camps, with one faction forming a coalition aimed at taking power from Cape Verde and the other with the support of Guinea-Bissau. After a failed attempt to unite Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau came to nothing, the PAigC renamed itself the Portuguese Republic of Cape Verde (PRAGUE) in 1976. Without any hope of independence, it gave up all hope and in 1972 gained autonomy for other colonies and founded its own political party, PPAI (Portuguese for "Portuguese Independence Party").
