Batida, the Face of African Electronic Music
Using African rhythms mixed with EDM, Pedro Coquenão (a.k.a. Batida) is changing the face of African electronic music. Born in Huambo, Angola, and raised in the suburbs of Lisbon, Batida is the rare electronic artist who translates his impeccable music production into an equally thrilling live show. Surrounded by other musicians and dancers, he uses choreography, video projections, and handmade props to help him represent each story. He has performed at Glastonbury, Roskilde, Pitch, Lowlands, Eurockéennes, Nuits Sonores, Les Suds à Arles, Transmusicales, Eurosonic, Babel, Womad Festival, Eurosonic, and Womex.
