Born in Maputo, Mozambique, Andre Cabaco lives in Portugal since the mid ´80s.

Since his arrival to Lisbon, he has worked with several artists from other Portuguese speaking countries, always representing his home country.

His career is mainly focused on his work as a composer. His research on rhythms, songs, typical instruments from Mozambique allows him to include in his repertoire themes inspired by several traditions from different ethnical groups of his home country.

Andre Cabaco composes also music for theater plays among other. Up till now he has released three CDs: “Xipapa-Pala” , “Bassopa” and “ A punga ni nhama”.

Through his music, Andre Cabaco searches the dialogue, the perfect combination between the traditional and contemporaneous sounds, making use of instruments, rhythms and melodies from Mozambique. Besides his work on traditional music from Mozambique, he also likes to experiment with other musical styles as funk, jazz and house.

He is without any doubt one of the most important artists from the music scene in Mozambique nowadays.
