The Lowdown What: Buraka Dj's (Buraka Som Sistema) Where: White X Beach and Lounge, Rixos The Palm, Palm Jumeirah When: Thursday April 25
On Thursday night, Portuguese innovators Buraka DJ's (Buraka Som Sistema) hit the decks at Rixos The Palm’s beachside nightspot White X, for an explosive experience of genre-fusing fun. Admired for their inspired creation of a new musical sub-genre dubbed ‘progressive kudoro’, this unique brand of dance music brings together the upbeat kudoro musical style developed in Angola in the 1980s with techno beats. Their innovation has won Buraka DJ's (Buraka Som Sistema) prestigious music awards, and their vibrant and energy-packed set in Dubai did not quell the wild excitement over the group. Meanwhile, DJs Afroboogie and DJs Mikownite did well at keeping the crowd hyped. Incidentally, earlier the same day, the DJ collective also announced the launch of a new video for band-member Branko’s new song, Time Out (featuring Orlando Santos). As song titles go, Branko’s clearly got exceptional taste.
