News: Chouk Bwa & the Ångstromers – Electric Mambo


From the depths of Haitian raisin mizik to the electronic ones…

We are pretty excited to feature “Electric Mambo“, the first single & video from Chouck Bwa’s new project released with Brussels electro duo The Ångstromers.

Together they reinterpreted the Voodoo tradition enriching the already high-flavoured Afro-Caribbean rhythms with modular synths and organic electronic sounds.
