Buraka Som Sistema performs a June 2009 show in Barcelona, Spain.

Portuguese Buraka Som Sistema was a breakout hit in 2009, taking its kuduro sound to dance floors worldwide. This Thursday, November 12, the group makes a stop Downtown at the Mayan Theatre. Tickets are on-sale now, but we've got a few pairs for blogdowntown readers who want to see the show.

Kuduro is a beat-based Angolan genre, and Buraka Som Sistema takes the sound and combines it with styles from around the world.

Want to be there? We've got two pairs of tickets to give away. Just leave a comment letting us know why you should win, and be sure to include contact info via email or Facebook. Contest closes Wednesday at 6pm.
