My parents were divorced, and in the early 80s my working mother hired an incredible woman from Cabo Verde called D. Felicidade to help take care of me and my brothers. She moved in with us and had a crucial role in my upbringing. I miss her dearly, as she is one of the reasons I am where I am today.
I remember she talking about incredibly racist episodes she went trough in the same place I grew up in, and as a kid I could not fathom how that was possible.
.
Like @dinodsantiago said, in Portugal these Women are the first ones to wake up and the last ones to go to bed. They clean houses, businesses, they nurture and take care of other people’s kids, becoming a solid root for many families. They often are single mothers, abandoned by their partners, and raising families on their own.
And on top of that, they still have to endure prejudice, discrimination and racism.
.
I am so happy and proud that Madonna is giving the @orquestra.batukadeiras.pt this platform, helping them bring their Cabo Verde culture, music, art and resilient spirit to the world. 
I am also honored to be a part of this journey.
.
Please also watch the new music video β€œBatuka”, directed by @emmanueladjei_

Thank you @madonna , thank you @orquestra.batukadeiras.pt , thank you @dinodsantiago and thank you D.Felicidade.

The World of Madame ❌
.
So proud of this documentary, collaborating with Madonna and a group of incredibly talented artists in my hometown of Lisbon.
.
The energy and rawness of these performances, most of them improvised, will never be forgotten by those that were on set.
It is my hope and intention that, at least some of it, has distilled into these 23 minutes.
.
Available on @amazonprimevideo .
Thank you to everyone that helped making it happen.
.
Special thanks to @dinodsantiago for being such a boss, to @telmalfredo for the smooth production and for everyone, artists and crew, that endured the freezing cold and yet performed to the best of their abilities πŸ™πŸ½

So proud of this album, that mixes the past with the future and brings to the world stage so many different cultures. 
Being Portuguese, it still amazes me that @madonna went to to my hometown and decided to create art inspired by morna, batuku, funΓ‘nΓ‘, fado and other styles of music, distilling history into incredible songs, moods and atmospheres.
What a trip. So honored to have worked on different aspects of this project, and πŸ™πŸ½ to everyone involved! Time to let her fly now, Madame X still has a lot of work to do. 🌍❌ #madamex #madonna #πŸ‘‘πŸ€ŸπŸΎ#euseioquesoueoquenaosou
