Angolan Portuguese - a Portuguese accent in Africa
I wanted to share this; Wikitongue's new video featuring Stéfane speaking in Portuguese with a native Angolan accent.
I thought it would be interesting to see your responses. As the YouTube comments stated, he speaks very clearly. I could piece together some of what he said because I am knowledgeable in a few other Romance languages (mostly Spanish) but his clear pronunciation is also a factor.
So interesting! Here in Brazil we love soap operas, and there's a new character from Angola in one that I'm currently watching. I love her accent! It's so cute. I particullary love the way that angolans speak. :)
Thanks for sharing the link. I'm currently studying European Portuguese and I often wonder if I will ever be able to speak the language since they speak so fast (to me). For fun, I attempt to learn a new song every week. Throughout my studies, I noticed that I prefer Portuguese music from Angola or Cape Verde. Now, I may know why. Muito obrigada!
I just started studying Portuguese so I'm sorry if I give you any wrong information. Nevertheless, here are some of the artists that I listen to:
Anselmo Ralph- "Não me toca." He's from Angola.
Matias Damásio- "Loucos" ft Héber Marques. He's from Angola.
Yola Semedo- "Você me Abana" ou "E táo bom." She's from Angola.
Calema-"Vai" ou "A Nossa Vez." They're from São Tomé and Príncipe (They're my favorite!).
Mika Mendesa- "Apaixonado" ft. Claudio Ismael. His parents are Cape Verdean.
Bonus: Kataleya- "Hoje É hoje." She's from Brazil but I think she has ties to Angola. Especially since her music video was shot there, but I don't know for sure.
Yasmine- "Esquece o Mundo." I don't know anything about her except that she can sing. Lol.
I hope that helps you.
Hi! This is super interesting, and my first chance to hear the african dialects! Much like the English dialects outside of North America more closely resemble British English than the more dominant North American Dialects, I've always heard that the African and Asian Dialects of Portuguese more closely resemble european Portuguese, and this confirms that, I think. Muito interessante!
