Pretaluz ‎(CD, Album, Promo). Pretaluz ‎(CD, Album).

Few artists of any nation have created such a passionate and human statement on political themes as Waldemar Bastos, while at the same time, expertly explores musical styles from across the African continent, creating a sensual and sensational statement. From the opening track "Sofrimento," a tender lament for Angola, this singer/songwriter casts a spell that lingers long after the last note has faded.

Kanguru Pretaluz is the world-wide debut of Waldemar Bastos. Recorded in New York with Angolan and Portuguese musicians, it was produced by noted downtown artist and Luso-savant Arto Lindsay. An intuitive musician, Waldemar belongs to a new generation of African artists - urbane, cosmopolitan, and able to draw from wealth of influences, local and not so near, to create indelible songs. These are his notes about Pretaluz.
