1ST ALBUM ‘ELEKTRIK MAKOSSA’ AVAILABLE CD/LP/DIGITAL
AVAILABLE BOOKING 2022-2023
A drum kit, a guitar, a few effects, two voices, BAFANG doesn’t need anything else to embark the audience on a journey filled with very pleasant sound turbulence. On stage (Transmusicales, Papillons de Nuit, Beauregard, Reggae Sun Ska, Afrika Tage …) or on record, as on their explosive 1st album “Elektrik Makossa” (released on November 27, 2020), the two brothers Enguerran and Lancelot, furious pilots of their afro rock canoe, lead us on the tumultuous waves of an exuberant river making us the witnesses of a unique spectacle which awakens the spirits while making oscillate the heads and the bodies. There, when the fat power of the stoner comes to curl up in the heartbreaking sweetness of a desert blues, when the hard-rock pulsations come to saturate the air with a groove with world contours, the spark can then occur and transform the hearts of those who contemplate it in a magical emotional blaze. The universe of BAFANG is like a dizzying big bang where the scenic energy and the rock urgency of Royal Blood would merge with the flamboyant guitar of Hendrix and where the heat of the desert magnified by the blues of Tinariwen would take on the festive colors. Manu Dibango’s makossa or the unstoppable groove of Earth, Wind and Fire.
