Low-key and joyful, it's a little like the palm wine music of West Africa, laid-back and welcoming, acoustic and friendly. Even at its most extroverted, with a full band, as on "Eliza We" and "Mode Xicavalo," it doesn't manage more than a lope; this definitely isn't music for galloping, but for the warm afternoons and evenings. Yinguica kicks off with Bernard Honwana, one of marrabenta's giants - his father also played the style - on a gentle, lulling piece, "Vou Morrer Assim'," and only very slowly moves up through the gears.

Marrabenta is a popular style of Mozambican dance music combining traditional Mozambican dance rhythms with Portuguese folk music. The name may be derived from the Portuguese word rebentar (arrabentar in the local vernacular), which means "to break". This may refer to the cheap musical instruments used in this music, which are often played energetically until they fall apart.

Marrabenta arose in the south in the 1930s and 1940s, the word coming from the verb rebentar (to break) which is a way people describe dancing. One urban theory is that the word originally described cheap guitar strings breaking with the energetic playing of musicians. Photographer DJ Clark captured the essence of the festival last year in a stunning photo album. This video from the Marrabenta Festival in 2010 by YouTube user TheMarrabenta shows how the Festival is living proof of the power of marrabenta to enchant generation after generation: The Festival is a breath of fresh air in Mozambique and crucial to maintaining roots music, as critics such as Fortunato of the Matapa blog pull no punches in relation to contemporary music.
