IKOQWE (pronounced ee-kok-weh) is a new project by Batida (aka Pedro Coquenao, the Angola-born, Lisbon-raised artist who ranks among the leading exponents of the new wave of African electronic music), and Luaty Beirao, aka Ikonoklasta, the Angolan rapper turned iconic activist.IKOQWE's inspiration comes from old school Hip Hop as much as from traditional Angolan music. The album includes drum machines, vocals in Angolan slang, Umbundu, Portuguese & English, discussions about neocolonialism, iniquities & falsified history, radio sounds, utopian solutions, and much more.The album will be preceded by a 3-track single, Pele ('Skin'), containing the album version, and remixes by afro house legend Bodhi Sattva and by UK 'disco noir' band MADMADMAD. A Pele music video will also be released, including some footage from IKOQWE's first live performance.
