Snarky Puppy's frontman, Michael League comes back to the chat cave to talk about his new project, Bokante. Bokanté – meaning ‘exchange’ in Creole – is eight outstanding musicians from four continents. Their debut album, Strange Circles, goes from a Zeppelin-esque blues stomp to folkloric Caribbean kaladja. Lyrically, it reflects struggles we all face, and what Bokanté wants to see in the world – connection, unity and love through exchange. And now, they’re taking that sound around the world. You can purchase their album at www.bokante.com
