Kuduro. An Angolan Urban Music We have a rhythm mainly from the coast I met it in Malange (Angola) during the carnival The magnitude of the drumming played by the elders Thank God that I was born in an age when Africa already knows a bit about electronics only to add a bit of emphasis in the rhythm The first time I gave it the name Kuduro I was watching a film with Jean Claude Van Damme On a scene where he does, or he did, as though as if he was drunk... And so he danced... We saw that, we thought it was a gag... I made the programming for the music And then I made the first song those steps and stuff... and I created a more sweetened rhythm then I built the choreography and today here it is... Kuduro it was my desire to make something based on the influence we had from foreign music from funk, house music I used to dance, but with the African rhythm over those international beats and so I decided to create my own style, also instructing the dancers. I learned to play the piano I made something that is mine I thought that creating something mine I would be developing my identity more than if I just imitate, for example, Michael Jackson. That's it.
