Angola: Movimento Band, Edmasia and Dom Caetano End Tour

Ottawa — The Angolan Movimento band, as well as the singers Dom Caetano, Edmasia and the BWG group, ended last weekend a tour of Canada with the holding of a show in Toronto, Ontario, in the ambit of the celebrations of Angola's 37th independence anniversary.

The band performed in Toronto presenting some of their best known hits, such as "Pelenguenha", "Tá Amarrado", "Njila ya Kuaku" and "Tá Stalar".

The singer Edmasia, on her turn, was cheered by the crowd when she sang the tunes "Vou assumir", "Verdadeiro Amor", "Não te Quero Mais" and "Erro Bom", the last one being the title of her first and so far only album.

The veteran musician Dom Caetano, in his peculiar style, sang many of his hits such as "Adeus a hora da Partida", "Som Angolano", "Diala Dia Hongo", "Tia" and "Nova Cooperação".

The BWG group, made up by Claudino da Costa (Black) and the brothers Walter de Paula and Geredh Lucas de Paula, represented the new generation Kuduro music style, mixing it with house music and zouk.

Speaking at the independence celebration ceremony, the Angolan ambassador to Canada, Agostinho Tavares, paid homage to all Angolans who sacrificed themselves for the conquest of liberty for Angola.

The Angolan artists are due back home on Wednesday.
