It's got a wonderful culture with beautiful people. But judging from the fact that the vast majority of people of Cape Verdean origins do not live in Cape Verde, I would say no.

Cape Verde has an interesting history. As far as living there it would depend on ones own situation. Unfortunately I only saw it very briefly, coming back from Cape Town, just a brief stop to let people off. Wish I'd had a chance to spend some time there.

This tune has stayed in my head for a few days now. The dancing is interesting but I would have liked to seen the musicians as well.

I'm mostly bumping up this thread, as it would be interesting to hear further discussion on this.

But, from plenty of other research I've read, it sounds like very few jobs there, and the landscape is a bit rough - super windy, not very habitable for growing crops, etc.

In essence, from what little I know, most Cape Verdians end up seeking for a life elsewhere - often Portugal, Brazil, or even Massachusetts/Rhode Island in the U.S.

I'd love to generate more discussion about it on this thread though.

I did some research on Cape Verde once. The women are beautiful. I never realized New England had large populations of them. Even more reason to move to New England.

This video from Cape Verdean singer Boy Ge Mendes (who moved to Paris) not only showcases beautiful music but has nice shots of Cape Verde.
