Buraka Som Sistema have wrapped up the recording of the second album – Komba. Komba is an Angolan ritual which is held seven days after someone has died where friends and relatives gather to drink and eat the favourite foods of the departed and share stories. Written over the last 11 months following a lengthy three years on the road promoting their first album Diamond, Komba looks set to showcase Buraka Som Sistema’s blossoming from agit-producers of kuduro into a fully fledged live-music dance-machine.
You can also catch Buraka Som Sistema when they play at the Electronic Beats Festival in Budapest on October 28th – more details soon or check back here.

If you’re a fan of Buraka Som Sistema’s Sound Of Kuduro (as we are), and especially if you thought it was the best thing ever (as some of us do), or are a fan in general of the Portuguese DJs’ multi-cultural, multi-awesome dance sound (as many of us are), then here’s another one for your favorites songs/videos list. The Angola influenced ‘Hangover (BaBaBa)’ is due as a single June 6, with an LP soon to follow on Enchufada.
The enclosed video, directed by João Pedro Moreira & Carlos Afonso was shot at Rangel ‘City’ in Luanda, Angola, while BSS was visiting some of their favourite Kuduro producers including DJ Znobia. It contains some amusingly edited loops of footage from people and friends hanging on the street of Luanda. Enjoy BSS’ latest strike below: Bababababababababa ba!
