The first video from Burkina Electric.
Burkina Electric was founded in 2004 with Mai Lingani (vocals) Lukas Ligeti (drums & electronics), Pyrolator (electronics & visuals) and Burkinabè guitarist Wende K. Blass. The group's objective is to bring new concepts to both Burkinabè music and Western club electronica by infusing computer-based performance with rhythms and other elements of Burkinabè traditons. A first, very successful tour took place in Austria in 2004. The group has just finished recording its first CD ("Paspanga"), which was released in Burkina Faso in May, 2006, when Burkina Electric played at this year's Ouagadougou Jazz Festival.
