My name is Pedro Coquenão. I was born in Huambo, Angola, and raised in the suburbs of Lisbon, Portugal. I have been creating and interacting with music, dance, visual, plastic and radio arts under the name Batida. It means beat in Portuguese and it relates to Luanda dance music culture. 
 GP made these remarks about me.
 “There’s certain types of music that come out of Portugal, Lisbon, over the years (...) All of this is sort of linked together for me by this one producer who goes by the name of Batida. It’s just on another level in terms of how he presents his show, how he approaches his music making, whether he is Djing or performing live, or adding visuals, philosophically just how he goes about his business.” Gilles Peterson - BBC6 Music 
 My most recent project is called IKOQWE and is out on Crammed Discs
