Kilindu. O Que o Futuro (What the Future Brings).
Kilindu is an amazing fusion band coming out of Lisbon, Portugal. This six piece ensemble cast brings together influences from all corners of the globe- Portuguese ‘Fado’ music, Cape Verde’s traditional ‘Morna’, Brazilian ‘Samba’ or Cuba’s ‘Habanera’- united by a common ancestry in Portugal’s 15th century ‘Lundum’ style. “O Que o Futuro” is a lush crisp sensation that will knock your socks off. Right now, the single is out, but you can email them (firstname.lastname@example.org) to hear about shows, albums, etc. earlier than the rest of the public. They also have a 2012 album, Fado Novo, available that’s just as stellar. Check them out, and enjoy a little bit of foreign flare tonight.
Personnel: Pedro Alves Duarte, João Pedreira, Joaquim Preto, Pantera Pitra, Ivan Pedreira, Tiago Simao
