Kuduro (literally ‘hard ass’) is an urban cultural movement that was born in Angola in the last decade of the Civil War.
Created in the discos and raves in downtown Luanda through a fusion between House and Techno beats and traditional Angolan rhythms, Kuduro spilled over from the centre of the city to the suburbs. It rapidly spread throughout Angola, Africa and now all over the world.
Kuduro mixes dance, music and lifestyle, its lyrics take inspiration from the simple day-to-day things in life, and its culture is present a little here, there and everywhere – be that on a street corner, in a school, in a taxi or even a football stadium.
‘I LOVE KUDURO’ follows the most idolised stars of this urban phenomenon that today influences scores of young Africans, namely Bruno de Castro, Eduardo Paim,Sebém, Nagrelha, Hochi Fu, Namayer, Tchobari, Titica, Francis Boy and Cabo Snoop, offering a unique view on the new generation of Angolan talent.
