MARCON, Frank  y  SANTOS, Ely Daisy de Jesus. Dance music, expressions and meanings of kuduro in Salvador. Ultima décad. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.47, pp.222-242. ISSN 0718-2236.

Kuduro is a dance and electronic music style born and consumed mainly by young people born in Luanda in the 90s and quickly widespread to Europe, America and Africa. The present article focuses on the presence of kuduro in Brazil on the newspapers, analyzing the particular case of its production, spread and consumption through a field research carried out in Salvador, Brazil between 2014 and 2015. From here, we aim at gaining understanding of the festive atmosphere of this style and reflecting on both the general and particular meanings of this artistic expression in a particular consumption circuit (with African young immigrants), and in a more general meaning. This investigation is a part of a wider research developed by the authors about youths, identity processes and their different ways of expression through electronic music-related lifestyles.

Palabras clave : party music; kuduro; lifestyle, youth; diaspora.
