Waldemar Bastos – Pretaluz (blacklight)

Not often does a voice like this come around too often. Waldermar Bastos hails from Angola and is prolific in creating mood with his vibrant and emotive vocal chords. Incorporating elements of afrobeat and tropicalia in his wonderfully balanced album he manages to take you into his world of sincerity and beauty contrasting this with some darker and sombre moments.

Rainha Ginga incorporates playful percussion behind upbeat guitar work a bouncy bass mid section while Muxima displays Bastos’s amazingly powerful vocal capabilities. A wonderfully diverse and evocative album. Highly recomended.
