Studious Sounds of Kuduro

Sit up and pay attention! This might be your last opportunity to catch Buraka Som Sistema’s almighty DJ/MC show as you know it today.

Calm yourself, they haven’t decided to reivent themselves. At least not yet. In fact, they’re playing on Saturday Jan 29th, at the rather cool new XOYO in London, just before they lock themselves up deep in the studio to set about recording their next album.

After that, no one knows what might happen. You know artists. They might decide that they actually hate themselves and shelve the project, only to come back to it in ten years time, during the 00’s revival and after unpopular reality shows. It’d be a little far fetched to imagine kings of kuduro BSS winding up like this, but is it worth taking the risk of not kickstarting your year with them?

So don’t waste what could be, who knows, the last opportunity to get to know the bootie-shaking sound of Kuduro they’ve put their spin on, bringing it all the way from Angola via Lisbon to bless London, or rather shake it up a little bit.

Come along to XOYO for a hit of bass in the form of the fabulous gems of the acclaimed album “Black Diamond”, and have a fantastic night with Lil’ John, Riot, Conductor, and MC Kalaf and friends.
