Desejo-vos então boas vindas ao Reggae Lusófono Vol. 1, uma mixtape que contem 16 músicas de diferentes pontos do universo lusófono, unidas não só pelo reggae mas pelo facto de serem cantadas em português, salvo raras excepções. São dubs do angolano Carlos Lamartine, dos luso-moçambicanos Grasspoppers e dos moçambicanos 340ml; são roots reggaes de gente como Kussonduluo e Natiruts. No meio ouvem-se líricas românticas da Daniela Mercury e Vanessa da Mata. Botem na aparelhagem em voluma alto, porque esta é uma mixtape que merece ser sentida.
Since I was a young kid that reggae has been one of my favorite genres of music. It was born as a medium for social intervention but quickly became the medium of choice to convey a wealth of different messages, from appeals for peace to pleas for love to a call to arms, embraced by people all around the world. It’s one of the most universal genres of music out there. More often than not, reggae is also used as a festive genre, one that expresses joy, and that’s why it was chosen to help celebrate the Lounge’s two years of existence.
Welcome then to Reggae Lusófono Vol. 1, a mixtape featuring 16 tracks from different points within the Lusophone universe, with the common factor of being top quality reggae jams sung in Portuguese, save for a couple of rare occasions where the musicians in question, although from a Lusophone country, chose to sing in English. You’ll hear dubs by the Angolan Carlos Lamartine, the Luso-Mozambicans Grasspoppers, and the Mozambicans 340ml; you’ll hear some roots reggae deep cuts by people like Kussondulola and Natiruts. In between you’ll listen to a romantic lyric or two from Daniela Mercury and Vanessa da Mata. Stick this in your stereo and turn up the volume, because the music in this mixtape deserves to be felt.
