Starting mid-April, North America will get its first true introduction to this band, who have already been playing to packed rooms and at sold out festivals from Rio to Roskilde to their hometown of Lisbon. Buraka will be kicking off a ten-date tour at Coachella with their explosive multi-decked live show, involving physics-defying dance troupes, serious percussion and rotating rapid-fire MCs. This is a show not to be missed, as escalating infamy is set to erupt into worldwide domination.
Buraka Som Sistema’s full-length debut, Black Diamond, comes out on April 7, 2009 on Fabric.
