Fanga (meaning spiritual force in the West African dialect Dioula) consists of 8 musicians that breathe Afrobeat - the hypnotic fusion of Funk and African traditional music as pioneered by Fela Anikulapo Kuti in the seventies. Fanga was born from the meeting between vocalist Yves Khoury aka Korbo of Burkina Faso and programmer Serge Amiano.
Fanga has evolved Afrobeat to a new era, whilst keeping its foundation and instrumentation within traditional codes This evolution is helped by the use of electronics and held together by Korbo’s unique and compelling vocal style. In 2006,the band meets up with the record label Cosmic Groove leading naturally to a fruitful collaboration. Ater two 12″ releases, a number of concerts and festivals (including supports to Antibalas, Meï Teï Shô, Seun Kuti, Guem…), Fanga records its new album “Natural Juice” in collaboration with a number of exceptional artists such as Tony Allen on two tracks, Segun Damisa (ex-musician of Fela and Femi) playing percussion and vocals, as well as the singer Kaddy Diara, the rising star of Burkina Faso on the track ‘Kononi’.
