Anané - Cape Verde's Global Goddess

Singer, songwriter, producer and DJ....oh yeah, and she also happens to be married to the legendary Little Louie Vega. DAMN - this woman is fierce!

Music has always been in Anané’s blood. Growing up in Cape Verde, her aunts and uncles made most of the musical instruments on the island, such as guitars, violins, and the Cavaqinho - a small four-string guitar. Anané discovered her talent for singing during family gatherings called “serenades”.

From these humble beginnings, Anané followed her heart to New York City in pursuit of her musical dreams. This is where she met DJ/Producer (and future husband) Louie Vega, who integrated her as a key member of the Elements of Life Collective. That was all Anané needed. She used that opportunity as a stepping stone to an international career, known mostly as a powerhouse singer and club-rockin' DJ. in fact, she will often get up on the console or stage and sing a few songs in the middle of her DJ sets. AWESOME!

Last year she released her sophomore album, Ananesworld, a mixture of dance, reggae, rock, R&B soul, world and Caribbean influences, including the smash hit Let's Get High.

Anané will be coming to Miami for WMC next week, performing alongside the entire Vega Records family. Here's the info, be sure to check her out!
