This single announces the return of Batida (aka Pedro Coquenão), who feels that “Bom Bom” is his most personal song to date.

Released on April 22 by Crammed Discs, the song talks about leaving a dark place and aiming for the individual and social good (“bom”). It was recorded with the precious collaboration of renowned Cape Verdean singer Mayra Andrade. The first meeting between Mayra and Pedro took place several years ago, but it was the confinement that brought them together. Exchanges of views on the planet, on values and on common words such as equity and dignity, melodies shared by sending audio sketches via mobile phones, all this ended up with a meeting in the studio, to trans- form this batida (literally “beat”) into a dance anthem.

Batida’s new album is scheduled for release in October.
