Ary Duarte Kueka was born on the island of Monte Cara, São Vicente, to Santantonense parents, where he spent his childhood divided between the island of Santo Antão and São Vicente. Later, he moved to the island of Santo Antão where he manages the space “Atelier Bar made in Cape Verde Sampadiu”, where he also dedicates his time to music. His lyrics range from the day-to-day life of his island of Santo Antão. The singer-songwriter has a voice with a special timbre, and he plays with each word, singing it and giving it soul, builds verses and poems with intense meaning. The word “mixture” translates the entire album “Sampadiu”, from the album title, from the streams of Santo Antão that mix with life, to the buzios of tabanka and ferinhu of Funaná, to the ancestry and contemporary bringing something new to Cape Verdean music. Ary Kueka has been in music for some time having composed songs already famous by other interpreters such as Mindel D’Novas sung by Ceuzany, among others. He ran stages, mainly composing with the anchor in the cultural space he manages in Santo Antão. Now he asserts himself and celebrates his music in this “Sampadiu”.
