It all started a long long time ago, in a far, faraway place. Somewhere over the land we now call Angola, a soba (tribal king) is crying. His tribe is on war, the enemys advancing. In the presence of tragedy, a hard and unavoidable decision takes place; the sobas pregnant wife will have to leave. The soba and his wife manage to reach a safe place, where the baby a girl is born in peace. The mother christens her baby child with a symbolic name; shell be named KUSSONDOLOLA, meaning changes, shifting. Alma (Soul) is the word to keep in mind while talking with Janelo da Costa, leader, author and composer of this reggae band, that plays original reggae songs (sang) in Portuguese. The band takes its name from that baby who has escaped tribal war, KUSSONDOLOLA. Janelo da Costa is that childs grandson. Janelo experiences reggae almost religiously, but with a smiling irony that keeps him detached from dogmas. Reggae, brotha, is soul stuff. Soul, obviously. KUSSONDOLOLAs name has a loyal guardian on this man. KUSSONDULOLA is not a trend, it is not news. It is spirit into music; a wish to tell whats going on around you. And KUSSONDULOLA do it through songs that dance on our feet and sign our hearts. KUSSONDULOLA is a band of happy discoverers, colonizing our souls and minds with true and infallible refrains. With our all times neighbours intimacy. It is not a band; it is family we want to pay visit to.
