Boddhi Satva And Zouk Singer Kaysha Hit The Dance Floor In The Video For 'Mama Kosa'

Central African Republic's Boddhi Satva and zouk singer Kaysha share the Lisbon-shot video for their afro house single "Mama Kosa."


Brussels-based Central African producer Boddhi Satva and DRC-born zouk singer-producer Kaysha release the smoky new music video for their massive afro-house tune "Mama Kosa." The track, sung entirely by Kaysha in his native language Langala, is an eclectic blend of the two artists'  broad musical influences.

Boddhi expressed how his multi-culutral background shaped his style of 'ancestral soul' in an interview with The Fader, "I was born and raised in Central African Republic from a father that was half Central African and French, as well as having a mother that’s half Belgian and American, being exposed to all those cultures has shaped my taste for all sorts of music. I feel no limitation musically but I do confess that my African roots are predominantly influencing my approach to sounds. This is definitely a common quality Kaysha and I have in common. We’re really fortunate that our music is touching people beyond borders, colors, sexualities or beliefs."

The Lisbon-shot video looks like a scene out of a gangster flick at first, as Boddhi, Kaysha and others sit around a large table in a dimly lit room, smoking Cuban cigars and engaging in an intense game of cards. The mood quickly shifts as the party moves to a hazy club filled with frisky party-goers dancing along to the song's booming beat. Boddhi and Kaysha join in, sharing some animated moves of their own, making for a lively 4-minute visual. Watch the music video for "Mama Kosa" below.
