BURAKA SOM SISTEMA
Everyone that enjoyed M.I.A, Jahcoozi and Modeselektor should check out BURAKA SOM SISTEMA from Lisbon. When I was in that great city for new years eve, I noticed every wall was covered with posters of this great nu-dancehall act. Seems like they're local heroes over there already, but soon their fame will spread because the music is simply astonishing. They appeared live at the last EUROSONIC fest in Holland last january, where they made a great impression on almost everybody there.
Luckily for me, I bought a 7" of Buraka in Lisbon, since it's hard to get by those outside Portugal. But a cd is supposedly on the way, and that will be available allover. For those living in Holland: Buraka is coming over again in April, so don't miss it!
But first: check 'em out and fall in love!
