“Antonio Sanches provided the “out of space” lead track on the Label’s seminal “Space Echo” compilation. Impossible to find for many years, the sound of “Buli Povo!” is just as arresting and mesmerizing today as it was on the day it was released. It has just taken us thirty-five years to catch up with António’s vision”
Funaná,the most african of music styles from Cabo Verde had been banned by the Portuguese Rulers. But in 1974, with independence and the birth of the Bulimundo band, everything changed. Their leader, guitarist Katchás, believing it was time for a new approach, decided to dig deep into the ancient rural roots of Funaná and modernise it with a full band electrified setting. the idea gave birth to a whole new chapter in the already rich Cape Verdean musical landscape.
