Waldemar Bastos was born in the Angolan/Congolese borderlands but fled his homeland in 1982 during the brutal post-independence civil war, heading first to Europe and then to Brazil, where he recorded his first landmark album, Estamos Juntos. Since 2003, he has been revisiting his homeland where he remains a much-loved figure. Reconnecting with his roots has shown its influence on his subsequent albums, reinforcing the importance of his African heritage to his universal style of Lusophone music.
