Buraka Som Sistema Hosts Dance Contest
- Words: Lulu McAllister
Does the sound of kuduro make you want to move something? Well, Buraka Som Sistema is inviting you to shake what your mama gave you with your mama, along with the rest of your crew, for their “Sound of Your Community Dance Contest.” The contest intends to celebrate the music, dance and culture of Angola, in combination with other local cultures, by asking participants to create and submit videos showcasing their own community’s flavor to the tune of the group's single, “Sound of Kuduro.”
To get involved, download the track here, flaunt your style in front of the camera with your friends, and then upload the finished product to Buraka Som Sistema’s YouTube group, where you can also find a more detailed description of the contest rules.
The winner will get to see his or her vid played on stage during the band’s North American tour. The runner-up will get a customized Buraka Som Sistema skateboard deck and autographed copy of the band’s debut album, Black Diamond.
