Newly formed Bokanté is the brainchild of Snarky Puppy founder Michael League. Trading in his bass for baritone guitar in this group, League brings together eight musicians from four continents to create a diverse ensemble rich in groove, melody and soul. The band’s debut album, Strange Circles (GroundUP Music), combines West African music, Zeppelin-esque blues and Caribbean kaladja with singing in Creole and French. With Snarky Puppy guitarists Chris McQueen and Bob Lanzetti, lap/pedal steel guitarist Roosevelt Collier (Karl Denson), percussionists Jamey Haddad (Paul Simon, Sting), André Ferrari (Väsen) and Keita Ogawa (Yo-Yo Ma), and vocalist Malika Tirolien.
