Throes + The Shine
Throes + The Shine are a unique blend of rock and kuduro – a style of type of music and dance originally developed in Angola in the 1980s. It is characterized as uptempo, energetic, and danceable). The result of this exotic mix is a brand new sound called rockduro.
Throes (rock duo) and The Shine (the kuduro singers enchanted by rap and R&B) formed in 2011 in Porto, Portugal. Their first album Rockduro was released in 2012. Audiences loved their rock sound blended with African vibes and their highly energetic and powerful performances. In 2014 their second album Mambos de Otros Tipos was released and performances on high profile festivals like Rosklide, Lowlands, Rock en Siene followed...Their third album Wanga was released in 2016. On Wanga they added electronica to their recognizable sound of rockduro which elevated their contagious, untamed energy to an even higher level.
