Semba: Yuri da Cunha

Yuri da Cunha – Kuma Kwakié

Semba is a traditional and very popular style of music from Angola. It is considered as one of the roots of Samba (in Brazil), Kizomba (the Angolan version of the french caribbean Zouk) and, of course, Kuduro (the frantic techno-house music that emerged among Angola’s youth, both at home and in Portugal, during the last decade).

Yuri da Cunha is one of the leading Semba and Kizomba artists, today. He comes from Angola, as you might have guessed.
