Bantwanas, which means children of Africa, is a collective of producers, songwriters and musicians collaborating to bring quality African house music to the world. Banwanas is a way of sharing African culture and music with the world, opening a channel that provides a global voice that invites the audience to connect with African culture through our music, while manipulating authentic African instrumentation.
His latest release, the Ixesha EP, arrives via All Day I Dream, with the title track receiving a remix from label founder Lee Burridge and Lost Desert mainstay.
Bantwanas creates music that works in all settings and transcends genres. His openness of him to a wide range of sounds is what has made him a beloved favorite, but also someone who operates in his own parallel musical world. Bantwanas leaves nothing behind and confirms the mission that electronic music has always had: to play with the present and advance into the unknown, beyond entertainment.
The result is a work as experimental as it is intense and addictive, which takes over oneself like sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, as few producers with a certain fluidity are willing to do. We do not know what the future holds, but we do know that this record is testimony to a turbulent and uncertain present, which will remain in our memory forever. For records like this, we can continue to fight for a better future.
