EN LONG “Hyper infectious rhythmic dance music from the Angolan ghettos, fusing electronics with traditional music. Born and raised in the Angolan ghetto of Cazenga, the now Portugal-based singer and instrumentalist DIRON ANIMAL already made his mark as lead singer of Throes + The Shine. His music is a melting pot of Afrobeat, Kuduro, electronica and tribal plus multiple other styles and cultures”

Born and raised in Cazenga, Angola, Diron Animal quickly learned to make the most out of everything that surrounded him. Imagination is an essential tool in learning how to make sandals out of old tires or creating toys out of cans. Although he moved to Portugal ten years ago, the lessons imparted there will never leave him, and one can hear the same ingenuousness in the sound that he crafts.

Diron Animal’s involvement in the music world began early: he was part of a traditional Angolan music band after a capoeira group, followed by a hip hop project and finally landed in Kuduro with The Shine, and its consequent rock variation, with Throes + The Shine. This last project created three albums that took it by all Europe. In 2017 Diron Animal released their first solo album with the label of the British publisher Soundway Records. Album that he explored in major festivals in Europe during the year 2018, such as at Paléo Festival Nyon, Trans Musicales Festival, Amsterdam Dance Event, etc.,

ALONE is an album that marks the solo stage of Diron Animal whose purpose is clear: to put all the listeners in a frenzied state invoking the inner animal inside each one and that can only be brought by the unbridled sound of the dance music. Everything in the vision of Diron Animal, the boy who has become a man but who will always use the imagination to create with whatever is around him.

EN SHORT

Born and raised in Cazenga, Angola, Diron Animal’s imagination was an important tool in learning how to make sandals out of old tires or creating toys out of cans. The artist is well known for his work with Throes + The Shine and is now opening himself up to a world of possibilities, centered around dance music: from afro-beat to afro-house, hip hop to funk, Kuduro to Coupé Décalé.
