Originally formed in the war-torn Angola of 1980, Afra Audio Star combined such styles simply because samba, funk, and reggae with well-thought-out lyrics to make a unique and satisfying sound. They released their self-titled initial record in 1986. Afterwards that same season, after having used their home nation by surprise, they relocated over the sea to Brazil, quickly producing a name for themselves within their brand-new homeland. From the 1990s, they got their show on the highway again, this time around going to Portugal. Their stay there brought them brand-new fans and noticed the discharge of their following three albums, Saparam (1991), Ydeble (1992), and Absaite (1993). Up coming the group shifted to Belgium where they documented Soko Soke, released in 1995.
