Dona Tututa Évora

Epifânia de Freitas Silva Ramos Évora, better known as Tututa, was born in Mindelo, on the island of São Vicente, on January 6, 1919, the daughter of António da Silva Ramos and Eugénia Maria e Freitas Silva Ramos. Following in the footsteps of her father,the pioneer coladeira composer Anton Tchitche, Tututa became an excellent pianist, who enchanted the city of Mindelo in the 1940s and 50s.
Also an excellent composer, Tututa Èvora, who now resides on the island of Sal, has also given Cape Verde two singers: her daughters Sónia and Magda Évora.
