Buraka Som Sistema announced earlier this week that they’re about to premiere their Red Bull Music Academy-supported documentary “Off The Beaten Track” The documentary was filmed during the course of a year in almost every continent and features the likes of Diplo, M.I.A., Santigold and Skream. The documentary tells the incredible story of four unlikely musicians, as they travel to Luanda, Caracas, London and the Lisbon suburb of Amadora to show how these cities, as well as their sounds, people, colours and movement helped to create the phenomenon that is Buraka Som Sistema. With the full support of Red Bull Music Academy and the talented illustration work of artist Kate Moross, Lisbon’s most unlikely band ventured on a trip around the world and back to the studio, as they bring their experiences home to start laying down the first beats of the next Buraka album in London.
Check out the video teasers for the documentary over at the Off The Beaten Track website.
