MOZAMBIQUE: Marrabenta

Marrabenta is a dance-folk musical style that arose in Mozambique in the 30s and 40s, and has evolved as a mix of African rhythms and Portuguese folk. There’s some great compilations online – it has a long history and influences Mozambican music today.

I’ve been playing these playlists in the background while I work – it’s a great tonic for a cold, grey snowy day.
