Vila Do Conde, Portugal
Since 2000, Nuno Cunha started playing records and a year later took his first steps in house music creation, always carrying his creative identity to all the dj sets and tracks…Influenced by African drumbeats and melodies, incurring in a soulful or techy mood, he always strives to keep the crowd energy building up.
In late 2011, Nuno Cunha decided to go one step further, and merge two styles like never before, “Fado” and “Afrobeat”, creating a mixture that kept the original soul to this particular Portuguese traditional genre, and also taking it to another level: the dancefloor, and it is currently one of the most played tracks of 2012 (Mariza – Meu Fado Meu – Nuno Cunha Souldillaz Remix).
Not because it was “Fado” and “Afrobeat”, but because it was different and audacious.
That is his identity.
