Exploring migration in Nansen magazine
Each issue of Nansen magazine zooms in on the very specific experiences of one migrant as a way to explore the wider subject of migration as a whole. For this second issue they feature Kalaf Epalanga, a musician, author and journalist who moved from Angola to Portugal as a teenager, using his story as a way into understanding migration between those two countries, but also within Africa and the wider lusophone world.
Articles cover a range of perspectives, from The Racist Legacy of Portuguese Colonialism, which explores the divisive history of Portugal’s empire building, through to the thriving music scene in Lisbon, which draws upon a wide range of influences including the ‘kuduro’ beats that Kalaf and his band Buraka Som Sistema helped to popularise.
