Fanga - Natural Juice Ashanti Mix (8:05) + Bonus BeatLabel: MIQUE
12", Ltd. 1000
Fanga - meaning spiritual force in the West African dialect Dioula - consists of eight musicians that breathe Afrobeat - the hypnotic fusion of Funk and African traditional music as pioneered by Fela Kuti in the -70s. Fanga was born from the meeting between vocalist Yves Khoury aka Korbo of Burkina Faso and programmer Serge Amiano.Fanga has evolved Afrobeat to a new era, whilst keeping its foundation and instrumentation within traditional codes This evolution is helped by the use of electronics and held together by Korbo’s unique and compelling vocal style. In 2006,the band meets up with the record label Cosmic Groove leading naturally to a fruitful collaboration. The 'Natural Juice 12"' [from 2007] was the group's first release on the label.
