Portugal's Buraka Som Sistema recently released their much anticipated sophomore album Komba last year, which they described as an exploration of the borders between life and death, and ultimately was a searing mix with their hyper-timed dance music approach. The outfit is most well-known for putting the Angolan style of kuduro on the map and blending it with more western, club styles.
Now the eclectic electronic outfit is returning to North America a handful of shows. Check 'em out if you can. It's sure to thaw out your cold winter for at least a couple hours.
