Yesterday I had a great idea. There was no internet in school so I couldn’t post anything during the evening. But here I am now. I was going through Blaya Rodrigues’s Instagram and I was thinking to myself “Portuguese people have so much talent!”. I personally believe that in moments of crisis people need to be really creative. We should all celebrate the fact that we are Portuguese and to be proud of that. I really am. So that’s why I’m starting a new section on the blog called PORTUGUESE BLOOD. In this section we will celebrate Portuguese talent and celebrate our Portuguese blood. From the music industry, to fashion, to bloggers, to people that created their business on Facebook. From artists to designers. Interviews. Everything that you can possibly imagine will be featured in this new section. I can already feel that this is going to be my favorite section on the blog. I really like this idea of mine and I’m sure you will also feel inspired.
Today, and as a first example, we are starting with one of my favorite Portuguese groups of all times, Buraka Som Sistema. I’m sure everyone knows who they are. I love them to death. I’m a huge fan of their work. I’ve already had the chance to see them twice and, seriously, I was dancing from the beginning till the end of the concert. They are so good. They already launched four amazing albums and they even have a single with one of my favorite artists in the world, M.I.A.. I love Lil’ John, Riot, Conductor, Kalaf (such a fashionable inspiration) and Blaya, the power girl of the group, who I love to follow on Instagram. Buraka Som Sistema makes me feel really proud of being Portuguese. Their music is always all over my ears and I can’t help but dancing every time I listen to them. Bellow you will find my favorite BSS tunes. I hope you enjoy them, and I also hope you like my initiative to celebrate Portuguese talent!
