Komba by Buraka Som Sistema
Released: Oct 2011
Label: Enchufada
In a year owned by bombastic, globe-trotting dance beats, Portugal's Buraka Som Sistema know how to set themselves apart: skin-scorching energy that clips along to a syncopated, kuduro-laced shuffle; soul-shaking beats culled from Euro-dance, Afro-pop, baile funk and more; and mood-setting guest vocalists, most thrillingly Bomba Estéreo and Cape Verdean singer Sara Tavares, who coaxes "Voodoo Love" around her little finger. A little heavier on the electro and lighter on the "ethno" than their debut, Komba is exhilarating, Pop-Rocks fun that will get all sorts of fans wiggling.
