Music and other modern musings

Coachella one day away. Me, miles away.

Today I learned Portugal’s masters of Kuduro, Buraka Som Sistema, are not only performing at Coachella but they are reportedly embarking on a mini North American tour with Dj Sega following the epic summer festival (tour dates below). I have little to no chance of attending either event. FML.

I suppose I will have to settle for endless hours of youtube vids such as this one:

My consolation for missing so many great acts in one spot will remain the wildly cheap but invigorating videos as the one above and the great mixes comprising multiple missed acts as this one below. Is there any sound Lykke Li can’t be mixed to?

Lykke Li – Dance Dance Dance (Buraka Som Sistema Edit)

I’m hoping to finally catch a Lykke Li live at this year’s Osheaga Festival.
