Buraka Som Sistema: Komba
Buy! - (Enchufada)
This Portugese group’s second album is another exhilarating set of kuduro, an energetic, hard-hitting dance music style originally from Angola combining techno, house and electro with Caribbean zouk and soca along with various African styles. A few more guest vocalists are used this time around, but otherwise the music’s just as raw and ferocious as before, with bright, squelchy synths, relentless techno and house beats and African percussion. 10/14/2011 - Don Yates
