This morning, a friend of mine send me some links telling me ¨I just discovered a new kind of music ¨, ok I ran for it and it is really cool , a mix of house, tribal, ragga etc... just checked out on wikipedia to get a clearer view of it :
Kuduro (or Kuduru) is a type of music born in Angola and immediately exported to Lisbon suburbs in Portugal, hence its two varieties Luandense and Lisboeta. It is characterized as uptempo, energetic, and danceable. French DJ/Producer Fredric Galliano, who specializes in African music, describes Kuduro as "house music with programming inspired by traditional carnival music from Angola". He considers the music a social movement created by poor people, akin to hip-hop, and describes the lyrical content as societal and political critique.
check out the vids and enjoy :-P
