Free download: Batida – Tirei O Chapeu mixtape

Batida driven by mastremind Pedro Coquenão (DJ Mpula) have been building sonic bridges between Lisboa and Luanda and generally between African and Latin American roots calibrated by cutting-edge bass-heavy electronic beats.

Most of all Batida is a cultural brand with a pervasive neo-tribal carnivalesque imagery expounded not only via music but also with graphics, poems, videos etc. Batida brought kuduro closer to its roots.

Polyrhythms and scintillating guitars are on full display in  this mixtape, which you can download here.
