bbc investigates technobrega in brazil

BBC investigates technobrega in Brazil:

“What is going on is that people, sometimes in very poor areas, are appropriating electronic instruments like computers and synthesizers to create their own music […]

this is […] not only in the tecnobrega scene but with many scenes around the world like Kuduro in Angola, Kwaito in South Africa, Bubblin’ in Suriname.”

    i love this kind of subcultures, i may not like the music hehe
    bbc always likes to throw in wage and money comparison as reasoning factor but the minimum wage there is higher than the average here, so it maybe not really related…
