In the middle of a Luanda slum, DJ Buda owns a recording studio, giving the opportunity to young singers to express themselves. Rhyming at Buda’s beats, the kids shout out all their worries and everyday experiences to his old micro with an incredible energy. In the end they dance joyfully, laugh and listen to their own work with the inhabitants of the neighbourhood. A new market is exploding with the new generation.
It's impossible not to dance with them!
