Don’t miss the NYC debut of Angolan musical legend Paulo Flores.
Singer, songwriter, and composer, Paulo is one of the great innovators of Angolan music and a living legend in his homeland. Fans of kizomba, semba, zouk or any style of partner dancing… this one is for you.
Semba is the elegant, earthy, African cousin to Brazilian samba — and the root of today’s kuduro and kizomba dance crazes. Flores’ poetic compositions focus on everything from love and life to history and politics, tapping into the deep roots that make semba the repository of decades of Angolan wit and wisdom.
In a country where the deep wounds of civil war are plastered over with new oil money and a beachfront building boom. Paulo Flores keeps a nation’s conscience and memory alive, and gives voice to the soul of a nation.
