Item ID: 493360

In 2016, Haitian voodoo band Chouk Bwa and electronic production duo The Angströmers united to form Chouk Bwa & The Angströmers. Chouk Bwa play traditional Haitian music; they would fit in the "mizik rasin" genre, alongside bands like Boukman Eksperyans, Boukan Ginen or Rasin Mapou from Azor.
However, until their decisive encounter with The Angströmers, their most characteristic feature was their loyalty to the essential elements of voodoo - therefore without any
instrumental addition. The Angströmers, an electronic music duo consisting of Nicolas Esterle and Frédéric Alstadt,
constitute one of the artistic emanations of the label The Angströmers. The Angströmers spread their music full of bass and echos, influenced by dub and drone music, all over the underground European stages. All along their encounter with the voodoo culture, they learn to expand their sound by immersing themselves into complex polyrhythms. They develop an electronic psychedelic music, free of all the codes of binary, 4/4 standards that dominate the club world.

Also available: VODOU ALE (CD).
