Cape Symphony Presents: KabuJazz Ensemble feat. Candida Rose

Cape Symphony Falmouth Campus


Born and raised in New Bedford, Massachusetts, Candida Rose Baptista is a 2nd generation American-born Cape Verdean. She is a vocalist, song-writer, entertainer, music and cultural educator, as well as a mother and grandmother.

Her 10-song debut CD entitled “KabuMerikana: The Sum of Me”, combines her Cape Verdean musical roots with her American (primarily jazz) influences, a mixture she calls “KabuJazz.” Candida Rose is a summa cum laude graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth where she earned a Bachelor of Arts – Music Degree, specializing in African-American/World music performance with a minor in African-American Studies. She has a Master of Science Degree in Transnational, Cultural, and Community Studies (now known as Critical Ethnic and Community Studies) from UMASS Boston.

As a working performer, in addition to her work with various jazz, R&B, and Cape Verdean musical groups through her company Golden Rose Music, Candida spends her days traveling the SouthCoast region of Massachusetts and Rhode Island as a Life Enrichment Entertainer singing for Nursing Home, Assisted Living and Adult Day Care facilities, as well as for various senior groups and associations. She is known to captivate and stir her audiences with her uniquely compelling voice, combining the overtones and undertones of jazz, rhythm and blues, and gospel with just the right touch of international spice.
