Les Disques Bongo Joe

Chouk Bwa & The Ångströmers,

Nèg Ginen / Ogou Bwe

This 7inch marks a new step in an unprecedented collaboration. After Electric Mambo, a first 7inch (Electric Mambo, 2019) as spontaneous as possible since it came from the first live session at Café Central in 2016, followed by a long work leading to the muddy Vodou Alé in 2020, here comes the joy and light !

Ångström Records

Chouk Bwa & The Ångströmers,

Electric Mambo

The two tracks were selected from the first meeting with the Ångstromers at Café Central, Brussels, recorded live in September 2016. Modular synths and other vintage electronic instruments bring another dimension to Chouk Bwa’s music, although obviously it is always the band’s groove and fluent tempo that leads the energy of the ensemble: no laptops, no drum machines.
