Kuduro is the sound of Angola. You hear it all over Luanda, the "candongueiros", minivans criss-crossing the city, bring the distorted, pounding bass to all corners of Luanda, while kids of all ages hum and dance. Here's a street scene in Sambizanga, where Os Lambas are kings:

Akwaaba Sem Transporte is the very first compilation of all Angolan kuduro, available worldwide. The very first, surprisingly, as everyone else's been focusing on European-made kuduro. The sound is grimy and raw, just as you'd hear it in Luanda. Akwaaba Sem Transporte, Akwaaba without transportation. Because transportation is hard to come by in Luanda, whether you're visiting or living there.
