Filmmaker Henrique Narciso charts the rise of a new musical phenomenon in Angola with this independent action drama. Kuduro is new style of dance music that was born in the slums of Angola and has become one of the most popular sounds in the country; kuduro blends the hard beats of electronic dance music and hip-hop with Brazilian and African dance sounds, while the lyrics reflect the often blunt realities of life on the streets. In Guerra Do Ku-duro, Narciso presents a scenario that explains how the music came to be, running parallel with a story of life in Angola's slums that's full of action, conflict, humor and dancing. Starring Tony Amado, widely regarded as the father of Kuduro, Guerra Do Ku-duro (aka The War of Ku-duro) was initially released direct to DVD to strong sales, but later played at a handful of film festivals, and was screened at the 2010 Rotterdam International Film Festival as part of a program on contemporary African cinema.
