TGIF! with Boddhi Satva

Boddhi Satva House Music DJ Producer

Boddhi Satva Ancestral Soul Interpretations Part I House Music


Boddhi Satva
, Central African Republic-born DJ/Producer has made some special music with his recent release, Ancestral Soul Interpretations Part 1. A collection of songs reworked with his distinct Ancestral Soul sound, it features artists including Bjork, Drake, Erykah Badu, Frank Ocean, Gyptian, Jill Scott, Meshell Ndegeocello, Radiohead, Rihanna, Stevie Wonder and Usher!

As you may know, I LOVE house music with soul and this description of Boddhi's sound is quite close to explaining why: "a generous and extravagant music that tells real life stories as well as makes people give their whole self up to limitless and code-stripped styles of dance – ritualistic, erotic, ecstatic, jubilant." 

 

Listen to and download Ancestral Soul Interpretations here or here and download it for free on Boddhi's site. You can also download Boddhi's single Nankoumanjan featuring Malian singer Mangala Camara here – video below (videos here for those reading via RSS):

 

Purchase Boddhi Satva's latest album Invocation on iTunes or Amazon.

Thanks to the fabulous Phiona Okumu for making my day!
