How long has it been since we posted a competition? Who cares? Here's an ace one now.

So, Buraka Som Sistema - everyone's favourite Lisbon ambassadors of Angolan 'kuduro' - are joining the similarly lĂ­ngua portuguesa don Edu K at Contort Yourself 06/12/08. A-mazing.

Well, fancy you and a guest getting in for nowt? And do you also desire a signed Buraka Som Sistema poster? And would you quite like their brilliant new album that's on the Fabric label? A long-player called Black Diamond that features collaborations with the likes of M.I.A., Kano and - Edu's mate - the Brazilian baile funk mistress known as Deize Tigrona?

Of. Course. You. Fucking. Do.


To win (UK entrants only), just answer this:

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal. But what is 'a lesbian'?

Please send your entry to northernights{at}googlemail{dot}com before noon 04/12/08 with 'BSS' in the subject line.

Meantime, the very excellent Get Weird Turn Pro can direct you to a Buraka Som Sistema mixtape if you go here.
