RĪGAS RITMI 2020
 

"Grammy" award nominee ‘’Bokante’’ is a world music superband, founded by American bass guitarist and composer Michael League, also known as a member of the world-famous funk and fusion band "Snarky Puppy". The word "Bokante" in Guadeloupe’s Creole language means "exchange’", and Guadeloupean language is chosen because of the band’s glorious vocalist Malika Tirolien. Together with Michael and Malika band also includes American steel pedal guitarist Roosevelt Collier, two guitarists Chris McQueen and Bob Lancette, and others. In both Creole and French, vocalist Malika is able to vividly paint nuanced scenes from situations familiar to the people of the 21st century, meanwhile also emphasizing the things that unite us all.

Michael League, leader of the group about the band: "To see us as a group of people from five countries and four continents, each with it’s own story and origins, all of which come together to create a harmonious, gritty and joyful sound, is a message in itself."

In Riga band will perform music from both their albums "Strange Circles" and "What heat".

 

"The Creole soul of Tirolien is at the forefront, until some Afrobeat riffing gives a loose, improvisational feel that fans of Snarky certainly will enjoy." - American jazz magazine "DownBeat"
