Afro disco boogie, Afrohouse and kuduro from Angola via Lisbon, music to unite people. Singer, lyricist and composer Nirox Romao aka Diron Animal was born and raised in Cazenga, Angola. Diron's involvement in the music world began early: he was part of a traditional Angolan music band and capoeira group, followed by a hip hop project. 12 years ago he moved to Portugal to study, but music became more than just a passion when he landed into kuduro. For over 6 years, he sang, danced and traveled the world with Afro Portuguese act Thoes + The Shine, mixing rock and kuduro, becoming an explosive ensemble. At one moment, Diron wanted to record a solo album to show a bit more of his own personality. in late 2017 his debut album 'Alone' appeared on Soundway Records, where he himself worked out the melodies, rhythm, vocals and even the guitar parts between classic funk to Afrohouse and kuduro bass. On 'Pair', his second album, he has worked hard to enhance his special formula. Inspired by the cruel death his nephew, it became a testament against oppression via the mixed sounds of Afro boogie, disco, funk, Afrohouse, coupé décalé and kuduro, with English and Portuguese lyrics.
