Chouk Bwa Libète is a Haitian mizik rasin (root music) band deeply embedded in rural voodoo and its three ingredients, drums, songs and dance. This economy of means proves all the more powerful to express the intensity of their mystical, committed dis- course.
Their debut album was recorded in April 2014 in the village Petite Rivière Bayonnais.
Chouk Bwa Libète performs at WOMEX 15 in Budapest in October 2015. With more than 850 showcase proposals and only 36 slots, their inclusion represents an incredible accomplishment.
The band will be on tour next summer.
