Rabasa plays a variety of genres of the warm Cape Verdean music. The alluring and distinctive vocal sounds of Cape Verdean music, which can be moving one moment and swinging the next, are accompanied by acoustic instruments such as guitar, cavaquinho, diatonic accordion and percussion. The music of Rabasa is deeply rooted in the musical traditions of Cape Verde. Over the years, Rabasa has developed its own sound based on these traditions. The repertoire takes the listener on a tour of the different genres of Cape Verdean music, from the melancholy morna to the steamy funana. History The Rotterdam-based brothers João, Jorge, To and Angelito Ortet come from a farmer's family from the little village of Rui Vaz on the island of Santiago, and make up the group's core.

Inspired by their older brothers Lindo and Emanuel, they began playing music at a very early age. They performed music and theatre in church and learned the tricks of the trade from their brothers and from playing with the older people in the village. For many people on Cape Verde, the process of gathering water is a daily ritual, as it was for the Ortet brothers who each day had to trek many kilometres from their house in a breathtaking green mountaintop area to the water source. Rabasa is the name of an old water source near Rui Vaz. This water source played an important role in the Ortet brothers' childhood years, and so the name Rabasa symbolises the source of the rich Cape Verdean musical traditions, which are the basis and the inspiration for the music of Rabasa.
