Music from Portugal – Kilindu

Kilindu is a portugese Latin, Latin Jazz , World Music, Fado , Afro Cuban band of six musicians. Pedro Duarte, João Pedreira, Quim Preto, Pantera Pitra, Ivan Pedreira, Tiago Simão conceived a musical bridge across continents from Europe (Portugal), to America (Brazil) and to Africa (Angola).  Now they’ve come together to create their own music, resulting in a very active online fan base working hard to spread the music. It’s their support allowing them to play gigs such as Optimus Alive 2013, where they supported the big bands like of Kings of Leon. Whether it’s Portuguese ‘Fado’ music, Cape Verde’s traditional ‘Morna’, Brazilian ‘Samba’ or Cuba’s ‘Habanera’, it is a blend of Latin jazz and Indie World Music traditions that serves their debut single well and makes them unique. Have a listen to their great single “O Que o Futuro Nos Traz”.
