Chouk Bwa & the Ångstromers is a cross-Atlantic collaboration between Haitian mizik rasin band Chouk Bwa and Brussels electronic duo The Ångstromers.
In a press release, the label states that the nine-track effort is a ” merger of distinct traditional Haitian mizik rasin (roots music) and rumbling electronic production, forging a thrilling and hypnotic dialogue between minimalist sound design and Afro-Haitian drum talk.”
In addition to the joyous ‘Sali Lento’, which you we’re premiering today, Vodou Alé also features songs titled ‘Move Tan’, ‘Odjay – Nati Kongo’ and ‘Kay Marasa Dub’.
The new album follows the release of their 2018 debut 7” single Electric Mambo released on Ångström Records.
