Avalanche Kaito and Chouk Bwa & The Ångströmers offer two radical ways of reinventing the North-South musical encounter. Avalanche Kaito effortlessly collide the griot tradition of West Africa with the explorations of Brussels' underground scene. The Haitians of Chouk Bwa transport the mystical experience of Voodoo across the ocean, its rhythms and chants magnified by the analogue electronics of Ångströmers.

Backed by two of Europe's hottest labels for this kind of experience (Glitterbeat for Avalanche Kaito, Bongo Joe for Chouk Bwa & The Ångströmers, who release their new album Somanti on 6 October), the two groups won't just be performing one after the other on the Rotonde stage. They're also preparing a surprise, exclusively for Le Botanique. A fantastic way to round off Chouk Bwa & The Ångströmers' European tour in style!

Chouk Bwa & The Ångstromers

CHOUK BWA & THE ANGSTRÖMERS

After a first European performance in 2015 at Roskilde Festival leading to many other performances  all around Europe, including WOMEX and WOMAD, Haitian traditionnal vodou band Chouk Bwa met the Brussels based duo The Ångströmers in 2016. Their new project combines a renewed dub sensitivity and Haitian rhythm science and spirituality. The ensemble has performed in Haiti and in European festivals including Trans Musicales de Rennes before releasing their first album Vodou Alé via Bongo Joe in 2020.

AVALANCHE KAITO

AVALANCHE KAITO

Avalanche Kaito (Glitterbeat) could be described as “grrriot punk noise”. Burkinabe singer Kaito Winse - surveyor for some time of the Brussels underground scene and last born of a family of Burkinabe griots -, meets the belgian punk noise duo made up of drummer Benjamin Chaval and guitarist Nico Gitto. Kaito, the guardian of the ancestral griot tradition, rubs shoulders with the multiform approaches of Benjamin Chaval and Nico Gitto in an explosive combination.
