About Buraka Som Sistema
Buraka Som Sistema is a Portuguese electronic dance music project that originated a new version of kudoro music known as “progressive kudoro”. A fusion of techno/electronic beats and the traditional sounds of African kudoro, Buraka’s sound takes an already energetic genre and ramps it up to 11. The project grew from a need to reconnect with urban music’s most profound truths and spread its original methods of music creation to a wider audience. In that respect the project has been immensely successful. Buraka Som Sistema has been featured at the Glastonbury Festival, and worked with artists like MIA and DJ Znobia.
