Overview

The word bokanté means “exchange” in Creole. And this world music supergroup is a true exchange, with eight musicians from four continents creating a rich fusion of electric blues, Afro-pop, jazz and folkloric Caribbean styles.

“Though the ensemble is multilingual, multicultural, and multi-generational, we all feel connected as musicians and people. And in combining our different accents I feel that there is a strangely common and poignant sound, one that can reach and relate to listeners around the world.”
