Titica is one of the biggest stars of kuduro, a music and dance style native to Angola and the Angolan diaspora in Portugal, that is a collision of trans-Atlantic sounds: techno, soca, zouk, hip-hop, house. Raised in Luanda, Angola’s capital city, the artist born Teca Miguel Garcia cut her teeth as a dancer, before translating that passion to MCing within the sparky style of kuduro. The sound came to global attention in the late ’00s, via artists such as Don Omar, Buraka Som Sistema, M.I.A. and Diplo. In the early aughts, a streak of hit singles such as “Chão Chão” and “Olha o Boneco,” brought Titica to the fore of the kuduro scene. She became a national celebrity, and even performed for the former Angolan President Jose Eduardo do Santos. In 2013, she was also appointed National Goodwill Ambassador by UNAIDS, to help raise awareness around HIV prevention and treatment, especially among young people in Angola.
