soundtravels_logo Sound Travels Wednesday Angola 70 Mix II [Audio=1] More of that Angolan fix for you. The sound is Semba and the vibe is revolution, mixed with pervasive social change. I love the music for the way that it makes me feel. More than for lyrical content, as I speak very little Portuguese and even less Bantu; I simply love the feel of the music. Though it should also be noted that the music comes from a profound period in the nation's history as they were wresting freedom from the Portuguese and (ultimately) about to do some national soul-searching in the form of a brutal civil war. Spirited times indeed, and the music bears this fruit... If you missed the set this is what it looked like.
