Based on traditional rythms and dances (Kazukuta, rebita, kabetula, semba), the urban angolan music of the late 60's / early 70's period were born from a strong desire to oppose a cultural resistance to the colonial portugese power. Music was actually the only way of soft protest. Artur Nunes, known as "the Spiritualist" because of his voice, was one of those freedom fighters; "Tia" became a standard of angolan music.
