​Nazar is an Angolan producer who grew up in Belgium. He returned to Angola after the civil war in 2002, and developed a unique take on Kuduro – a mostly upbeat Angolan dance music genre that often serves as a distraction from the country’s violent history. Nazar inverts this formula with rough, visceral sounds and themes reflecting on the 27-year Angolan civil war. On his album 'Guerrilla' (Hyperdub), he examines his family’s collective memory and country's past, threading together oral histories, political realities and, most significantly, re-imaginings of immediate horrors.
