BURKINA ELECTRIC, the first electronica dance band from the West African country of Burkina Faso, brings traditional Burkinabe music and Western club electronica dance to NYC. Led by Brooklyn-based composer/percussionist Lukas Ligeti, Burkina Electric oscillates fluidly amongst the traditional soundscapes of the African nation of Burkina Faso, fusions of techno/trip-hop, and the rhythms of contemporary electronic dance culture, creating what many call a new genre of African electronica “both experimental and exciting.”
