Is Cape Verdeans are similar to Caribbeans, then so is most of Africa.

This is the first Guinea-Bissau Creole song in which I can actually understand some of the words.

I have since connected with the Cape Verdean community I knew immediately once I seen the second video where my 1% sub-Saharan African DNA came from. It's been confirmed where those segments come from they are a well tested close knit wonderful people also many of them share the European share of DNA with me. This is off-topic but it pays to follow your hunches. Btw unlike other parts with a Mulatto population very few Cape Verdeans ancestors have been slaves since the 1500's unlike AA's where most of the population was enslaved for an additional 300 years.
