About the film

Buraka Som Sistema gives us an uncompromising, bass-heavy and sweaty fusion of music genres from all over the world, where festive beats and kuduro from Angola’s slums are the all-pervading main ingredients. “Off the Beaten Track” takes you behind the scenes and follows the colorful energy bombs from Buraka Som Sistema during the course of one year, where they explore the remotest corners of several continents to find new, exciting and original beats and inspiration for their upcoming album. The film gives us an insight into the Portuguese sound system’s creative process, which reaches out into all corners of the world. From London and Lisbon to Angola and New Delhi. From home studios at Grandma’s place in Caracas to the fancy Red Bull studios in London. The documentary created in collaboration with the Red Bull Music Academy unveils Buraka Som Sistema’s well-deserved respect among colleagues such as M.I.A., Diplo, Santigold, Skream and Benga, who all have to live up to something when they get on stage after the ever-exuberant party catalysts. So find your best dance moves and get ready to rock that ass!
