The Angel City Jazz Festival brings a mélange of jazz, world beats and dance music to this hipster mecca with Burkina Electric with Lukas Ligeti and special guest DJ Spooky. Hailed by the New York Times as an “irresistible brew of West African music and electronica,” Burkina Electric is the first electronic music group from Burkina Faso, in the interior of West Africa. Burkina Electric’s music combines the traditions and rhythms of Burkina Faso with contemporary electronic dance culture, making it a trailblazer in electronic world music. A diverse and talented group consisting of four musicians and two dancers, they collectively participate in the creative process and represent disparate musical genres and sounds from across the globe. Led by noted percussionist Lukas Ligeti, this concert will feature a collaboration with the legendary New York electronic music artist D.J. Spooky.
