Biography

Once upon on a time a group of children arrived from Cape Verde Island, loaded of dreams and illusions that we all bring from our mother land that did not give us many opportunities. The group finished for involving in gangs and with disastrous consequences...

The history of the CV BOYS band could start the same way, as it has happened in the last page of the history of our immigration.

NOT! This is not the history of t he CV BOYS band, an example for our community. The group counts on 4 engineers: The brothers Filipe, Domingos, sister Filomena and her boyfriend, António Darosa. The other elements of the group equally are known as head of the family and professionals.

Self-taughts of music
The CV BOYS band, all of the same village in the Mosteiros Fogo, had traced its route in music and project their life professionally out of the stage.

Everything started with a keyboard. A magical instrument, for whom, as many boys of our country had started improvising their drum and guitar of cans, their clarinet of bamboo etc.
They were three playing with one hand each, in the related keyboard, at home.

Jose Darosa had thicker fingers and stepped on two keyboard keys at the same time. Make the others go for other instruments. And thus started the formation of the CV BOYS band that, after learning without a master, debut for the first time at Madison Park Technical Vocational High School in Boston where they all graduated.

Already 8 years have gone but they have not stopped since, even so do not appear many times in the stage. Slow will go far is the mentality of the group that arrived to offer their talent to entertain the nights of the Bar Di Nôs in Brockton and other centers of leisure of the community.

To record an album is the dream of any artist or band. CV BOYS band was not an exception. It took about 7 years so that dream became a reality. After successive denies of walking studios by studios, appeared Frantz Rolling that gave a hand to them. The Haitian producer that was honored in the day of the release party in the past 19 of November 2005 in Brockton.

Djoy Delgado and Grace Évora of the Splash had been in charge of the mixing in Holland and the mastering in France. Here it where CV BOYS band release “Un So Korasaun” album.

The group plan to do many shows in different places. The leader of the band is ambitious. Filipe dreams of one tour world-wide and to make with the group comes to live exclusively of music.

Kantu Mi Konxebu

oh baby iea
oh baby iea

dedika tudu nha amor pa bo u baby
ben flan undi kin staba eradu
pamodi un sta ta xinti
ma bu sta muda bu manera -- bu manera
Kantu mi konxebu
bu prometen un amor sinseru
ma kon tenpu tudu ba ta muda
sera ki inda bu sta apaixonadu pa min
sera ki inda bu sta apaixonadu

pamodi ki bu sta sin ku mi
pamodi ki bu sta maltratan
pamodi ki bu sta muda bu manera oh baby

e un emusaun entri mi ku bo
tudu kun pesaba foi un ilusaun

Amor pamodi bu sta tratan masin
no baby e pamodi un sta ku kabesa kansadu
si bu prometen un amor bu sta dan so dor di kabesa
amor diskulpan - bu ta diskulpan
un ka sabe
ja ki sin entaun jan bai embora
