Okayafrica TV caught up with DJ Riot and J-Wow of Buraka Som Sistema before their show at New York's Bowery Ballroom to chat about the group's marriage of Lisbon, Angolan, and Brazilian street sounds. The two reveal that, contrary to general tag-lines, they don't see themselves as a kuduro band and shed on their latest work, the global grime stomping Komba LP, out now. Watch the video above.
