Bokanté

Pavilion Theatre

Presented by Serious

Bokanté’ means ‘exchange’ in Creole, the language of singer Malika Tirolien’s upbringing on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. It’s the perfect name for a gloriously singular new project that unites three members of stupendous jazzers Snarky Puppy (Michael League, Chris McQueen and Bob Lanzetti), pedal steel wizard Roosevelt Collier, a trio of percussionists and Tirolien’s exquisite vocals into a genre-crossing fusion sound with equal echoes of delta and desert. Touring their debut album Strange Circles, Bokanté will surely be playing much bigger venues before long – so catch them here first.

Produced by Manchester International Festival.
