Central African Republic-born DJ/producer, and Offering Recordings head, Boddhi Satva has been fermenting a signature sound he calls Ancestral Soul — a concoction of deep house infused with Central/West African rhythms and urban R&B, all shaped by mentors and collaborators such as Osunlade, Louie Vega and Alton Miller.

In Africa In Your Earbuds #31 he delivers an hour-long excursion into the many mutations of African house music, centering on Angola. As Boddhi Satva explains:

I have chosen to take the listener on a journey with various forms of Afro House by the likes of Atjazz, Rancido and Djeff from Angola. I first heard of him when I was mixing my album at Vega Records Studios, and Anané Vega played “Tambuleno” produced by Djeff & Silyvi. I had no idea Angola got down like that! I first went to there in 2010 and I was completely blown away. Angola is where it’s at pretty much. Culturally, it has a growing impact on many other regions in Africa and throughout the world. I later met Djeff & Silyvi in Luanda and put out their track “Mwini” on my label Offering.

    I feel the DJ’s name, but I don’t know if it fits the meaning it’s intended.

  • Dr Bob Jones

    I thank you all for listening to this mix.
    @Dr. As per usual your support is humbling and i hope to have soon on Frequencies of Offering when your time permits.
    @Gregory Keaton, Thank you for feeling the name and hopefully the music too. If you get a lil deeper into what i do and say i’m pretty sure that you’ll see that it’s not a name used without extreme understanding of the meaning within.

    Blessings.
