It's impossible to listen to this jam sitting down. Damn! Psychedelic kuduro with traces of semba. It's like Angola itself was sampled for this hell of a beat, and it's image of beautiful chaos captured on film. The post about Radio Fazuma's Batida Project is coming soon...watch this space! And here's to a Saturday morning as happily explosive as Alegria.
É impossível ouvir isso sentado. Fogo! Kuduro psicodélico com traços de semba. Angola samplada num só som, e a imagem a espelhar o carnaval Luandense. Vem aí o post acerca do Projecto Batida dos manos da Rádio Fazuma, do qual sou um 'ganda fã'. Que tenham um sábado tão cheio de energia como a que esta música e vídeo transmitem. Mantenham-se sintonizados!

Caipirinha Lounge is all about music in Portuguese or by Lusophone artists. It's born out of a sincere belief that Lusophone music should reach a much larger audience. The lounge features music from Brazil, Angola, Portugal, Guine-Bissau, Cabo Verde, São Tomé & Principe, Mozambique, Galicia, and even Timor-Leste. Occasionally, there will be posts about singers so good that the fact that they do not sing in Portuguese is momentarily overlooked.
The purpose of this bilingual blog is purely educational. Plug in your earphones and hear rhythms from places you have never heard of, from artists you have never heard about, sung in the world's most beautiful language. If you like a song, you can download it by right clicking on it and then clicking "save target as". If you like it a lot, buy the cd, support the artist, keep good music alive.
If you are a singer or a label and want a particular song taken down, please contact me. Or, if you have music you think I will enjoy, do send! claudio.silva(at)caipirinhalounge.com
