Ahead of their upcoming tour across the UK and Europe, the Michael League-led international music ensemble Bokanté have released a stripped-back version of ‘Bòd Lanmè Pa Lwen’ from their last album “What Heat”, a collaboration with Metropole Orkest and Jules Buckley.
Band members Michael League (Snarky Puppy) and Malika Tirolien visited Real World Records a few months ago and reimagined two tracks from “What Heat” as a duo. Malika’s impressive vocals take center stage, with Michael League building a multi-layered rhythmic accompaniment. The UK tour kicks off in the coming weeks, and we hope this gets you in the mood!
