Throes + The Shine – Guerreros (feat. La Yegros)

throesKuduro, Steelpan, La Yegros and Carnival Beatz. From Luanda to Porto with a brandnew Album coming in a few days. Watch out for it: Highly Infectious! Having joined forces in 2011 in a chance encounter that happened in a downtown club in Porto, they started mixing up the unexpected. Throes were rock and roll, The Shine were pure kuduro. Together they turn these two styles upside down. Merging the african culture of the Angolan people with the more urbanized electronic and rock scene, they wound up with a new baby. Rockuduro was born and with it came a high energy cocktail of rocking tropical kuduro beats that will make your hips move on their own, just like some voodoo curse.
