Batida is the name of a radio show that, since 2007, promotes DJ Dj Mpula’s favourites on everything Afro or Afro inspired urban music. Stuff like Kwaito, Kuduro, Brazilian Funk, Dancehall, Pretoria and other Afro House, etc, on the national station Antena 3. Radio Fazuma is now presenting “Dance Mwangolé”, to make you move your hips like a Mwangolé.

The story of the record goes like this: Dj Mpula did a research on archives of old Angolan Music, sampled and played with them on Batida broadcasts, prepared the blueprints for the project and then called Beat Laden in Lisbon and Sacerdote in Luanda to ask for their collaborations at the studio. His brother Ikonoklasta, Maskarado, Dama Ivone and Bob, were the other Mc…s on the record. Meanwhile, back to Lisbon, Roda, worked on translating his ideas into graphics and Catarina Limão, a nuclear element in the Fazuma crew, brought her passion about photo, doing our video.
