Chouk Bwa & The Ångströmers (INT) at Valby Kulturhus

Haitian voodoo trance and immersive dub

Chouk Bwa & The Ångströmers bring new dimensions to Haitian rhythm science and spirituality, amplifying the traditional trance with modular synth and insistent dub. This spring, they’re bringing hearty grooves to ALICE.

Note: The concert takes place at Valby Kulturhus and is part of ALICE’s membership programme.

In 2016, Haitian vodou band Chouk Bwa met the Brussels based duo The Ångströmers. The project combines a new dub sensitivity with Haitian rhythm science and spirituality. 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. There are certain freedoms that cannot be coerced. Even more, the electronic instruments are wired directly to the drums that feed them with impacts and caresses. All the Vodou families are there with their many rhythms and songs. Radical Vodou roots for urban audiences. This new ensemble has performed at several venues and festivals and released two records on Joe Records. Chouk Bwa Libète played at Global in 2016, and we are happy to present him this Spring in the new project with the Ångstromers.
