Chouk Bwa & The Ångströmers Vodou Alé [Les Disques Bongo Joe; May 2020]

Vodou Alé (Les Disques Bongo Joe) is not simply inspired by the ritualistic archetype that is voodoo, in fact, it is the perfect antidote to this esoteric paradigm of the Haitian tradition.

Vodou Alé is the distinction between ancient traditions, rituals, events and contemporary fusions. With an element of transcendental improv, it is obvious that the music moves through them but not from them and although it is with them, it does not truly belong there. Be willing to be surprised.
