Kuduro, which literally translates as ‘hard ass’, is an urban cultural movement that was born in Angola during the last decade of the country’s 30-year Civil War. Created in discos and raves in downtown Luanda through a blending of House, Techno beats and traditional Angolan rhythms, Kuduro music and dance spilled over from the capital city to the suburbs. It rapidly spread throughout Angola, and then across Africa. It’s now becoming popular around the world. ‘I Love Kudoro’ follows the most idolized stars of this urban phenomenon, including Cabo Snoop, Os Namayer, Francis Boy, Titica, and Os Lambas, that today influences scores of young Africans, musically and in fashion and lifestyle.
