In the early 1980s, a musical revolution took place in Cabo Verde. After Cape Verde won independence in 1975, the band Bulimundo and its leader Katchas introduced Cape Verdean people to their electric version of funaná. This cultural shockwave led the group to a success that is at last available again!
