Biography

Afrotronics is a musical fusion between West African music and electronica, exploring the boundaries between cultures and styles, traditional and modern, electronically and acoustically. The multi-cultural quartet uses live electronics, synths and samplers as well as acoustic and traditional instruments to place the West African expression in an urban sound environment. We call it innovating tradition. This band consists of lead singer Fanta Yayo, a ”griot” and dancer from Guinea Conakry, Swedish singer and percussionist Lisa Ladberg, Robin Cochrane, a multi-instrumentalist from Scotland/Sweden and Edo Bumba, singer and guitarist from Congo.
