The Portuguese dance collective are back with new album, 'Komba' and are back in London to promote it with a show at Heaven on Tuesday the 22nd of November.
Since the release of their ‘From Buraka to the World’ and ‘Sound of Kuduro’ EPs and the critically acclaimed album ‘Black Diamond’ LP, Buraka Som Sistema have won hearts and minds across the world via a combination of forward thinking productions and unforgettable live shows. Looking back, 'Black Diamond' was as inclusive as it was fiercely driven, earning the group an MTV Europe Award. Pitchfork called it “One of the fiercest dance records in recent memory." It was whilst touring that album that the industry and public alike woke up to the astonishing Buraka Som Sistema live experience, with the band enjoying increased recognition as top performers; the New York Times and The Guardian raved about the group's stage presence and The Fader considered their show “one of the most jawdroppingly effusive club moments we’ve witnessed”.
Support on the night comes from Redinho, one of Number’s multi-talented rising stars, is the nom de plume of London-based producer Tom Calvert. Despite having only just released his second EP, the man has managed to sneak into the public consciousness thanks to the instantly sold out Bare Blips EP (released on Numbers in 2010), a series of genre-bending shows across Europe, America, and now his most recent release, the ‘Edge Off’ EP.
