Sebem - God's Project (from O Midjor Di Kuduro 2009)
Further proof that Kuduro is the music of the devil. Most information points towards West Africa as the origin of the duppy, but it's obvious that Angola has a problem too. That suspended guitar is what makes this track so great, and while it's not exactly epic like the title might suggest, it's a great warning to stay the fuck away. Chief Boima put it right, it really is Angolan Ghetto House, and it is for two reasons: I've seen them dance like Chicago kids, and the sounds paint a similar picture of South Side parking lots and West Side community centers.
