KUDURO NO FT

Acabo de receber esta noticia do Luis:

Buraka Som Sistema play kuduro by way of Portugal, where a large Angolan population has helped spread the music. Alas your correspondent isn’t expert enough about the nightclub scene in either Luanda or Lisbon to tell exactly how authentic the troupe’s version of kuduro is – but such niceties were swept aside by their extraordinarily propulsive concert at the Scala.

The set was drawn from last year’s excellent album Black Diamond. Music came from a trio playing two sets of drums, synthesisers and a laptop, while a further trio of MCs – two men and a woman – bounced round the stage delivering shouty, punk-meets-ragga vocals.

Genres bounced around like pinballs. Carnival klaxons split the air alongside Daft Punk and Prodigy samples. “Aqui Para Voces” borrowed the animated Miami bass and samba drums of Brazilian funk. “General” morphed between Afropop and electropop. “Sound of Kuduro” was based around a playground chant and hammering dance beats.

Bom, eu so' me apercebi de um que reconheci de um video que alguem me tinha sugerido aqui no blog e pela conversa que era sobre o grupo e o kuduro. Nao sei se os outros tambem estavam no mesmo voo.
Mas foi interessante porque isso foi poucos dias depois de pela primeira vez ouvir falar deles e ter visto o tal video...
