Sound Travels Wednesday: Angola 70 II

Sound Travels Wednesday Angola 70 Mix II More of that Angolan fix for you. The sound is Semba and the vibe is revolution, mixed with pervasive social change. I love the music for the way that it makes me feel. More than for lyrical content, as I speak very little Portuguese and even less Bantu; I simply love the feel of the music. Though it should also be noted that the music comes from a profound period in the nation's history as they were wresting freedom from the Portuguese and (ultimately) about to do some national soul-searching in the form of a brutal civil war. Spirited times indeed, and the music bears this fruit... If you missed the set this is what it looked like.
