In 2016 Haitian vodou band Chouk Bwa met the Brussels based duo The Ångstromers. 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 in 2018 at Siestes Electroniques (Toulouse, FR), Eastern Daze (Gent, BE), Explore the North (Leeuwarden, NL) and in 2019 at Trans Musicales de Rennes among other gigs. In 2020 they released the album “Vodou Ale” on Bongo Joe Records. The same year they were supposed to play at ALICE. Sadly, that concert got cancelled, so we are very happy to present them at Valby Kulturhus in early 2022.
