Stromae Performs His Cesária Évora Tribute 'Ave Cesaria' On A Moving Truck In San Francisco

Stromae continues to take America, this time performing his Cesária Évora tribute "Ave Cesaria" on a moving truck in San Francisco.


Today, Stromae shared the latest installment in his 'Stromae Takes America' video series. This time, the singer finds himself in San Francisco on his way to the Golden Gate Bridge to perform his infectious Cesária Évora tribute "Ave Cesaria" along with his talented 4-man band. The group lay down the track in the back of a moving truck surrounded by hills and lush greenery before getting pulled over by state troopers who warn them about not wearing seat belts, and then proceed to ask the band to perform for them. Stromae and the band deliver by performing a spirited rendition of the string-filled tune live from their pickup truck. Peep the colorful clip via Billboard below. In just a few hours, Stromae will take the stage at New York City's Madison Square Garden alongside special guests Jidenna and Janelle Monáe for the sold-out final show of his North American tour.
