About

Their music hit the streets on a special day, a day almost like all the others. It was in 2004, in Sintra. Like some sort of an anti-routine crew, inspired by the muses of festivity, in an exciting dialogue between music and liveliness, they created a framework for dancing and blissfulness.

Their seeds, planted in the streets, flourished, as they started to perform on several stages.

The enthusiastic reaction of the public inspired the creation of new songs.

In 2005, the EP was released. The first steps on the way to internationalization were given. They performed in festivals in Spain and did a tour in Slovenia.

During their journey, they stood for anti-war initiatives, social, cultural and artistic causes, and supported immigrant communities, due to their engaged spirit.

In 2007, with live concerts filling the agenda, they are invited to participate in the recordings of other projects like Terrakota, Blasted Mechanism and Tucanas. But they had still time to record their first album, with their own songs.

2008 started with the release of the album Kumpania Algazarra, bringing together fragments of their experiences in the streets, gardens, alleys, squares, unusual places and improvised parties.

Their music is nomad, multilingual and universal.

They're influenced by a kaleidoscopic sonority: Balkan furor, Arabic drifting, Latin warmth, Afro-Beat refinement, and explosions of Turbofolk and Ska.

The result of this variety of influences, brought together by a unique and original fusion process, is an energetic and contagious moment.

Their lyrics invite to a reflection about the inhuman state of the world, and stimulate individual liberation.

This musical project brings freshness and enriches the world music made in Portugal, extinguishing geographical and age limits.
