In 1974, the Carnation Revolution brought about the end of both Portugal’s reigning dictatorship and the nation’s control over a number of African colonies. The ensuing independence process drove hundreds of thousands of African and Portuguese people to seek refuge in Lisbon and, without housing support, build their new homes on the city’s outskirts. Rita Maia and Vasco Viana’s Lisbon Beat documents the vibrant intercultural and intergenerational Afro-Portuguese music scene now flourishing in Lisbon’s suburbs. Essential viewing for any ardent Príncipe fan.
