Third World Ambassador
Kuduro is a regional style of music from Angola which essentially sprang from African producers trying their hands at techno and house, though these doods are making music currently out of Portugal. The Fader's John McDonnell tells you everything you need to know here.
From what I can tell, this is just a collabo with M.I.A. and Buraka Som Sistema has no plans to join her label. If you visit their myspace, some of their production is actually a lot more interesting, and gives you a better feel for what kuduro is.
