For those of you who haven’t been following this part of Lisbon’s music scene, Kuduro is a musical style that was born in Angola in the early ’90s. The Lisbon branch of Kuduro — Lisboeta — has become a high-energy form of electronic-dance-music that’s now breaking into the mainstream. The popular kuduro band Buraka Som Sistema is in the Portuguese pop charts and has videos on MTV there.
