Buraka Som Sistema are from Lisbon. They make banging tracks that fuse modern electronic dance sounds with traditional Angolan Kuduro beats. Last December they went to Angola to check out what the shit was going on, and the result is the new video for their track, Sound of Kuduro, featuring MIA, DJ Znobia, Puto Prata and Saborasa. Kids are dancing in the street, despite being surrounded by guns and corruption every time they turn around. Check it out.
Those of us in the big smoke will also have the chance to see them live...
