Electrafrique Returns to Dakar With Boddhi Satva

Our Electrafrique party returns to Dakar with a bang with none other than the godfather of Ancestral Soul, Boddhi Satva.

OkayAfrica Electrafrique comes back to Dakar with a bang for its ninth Senegalese edition with none other than the godfather of Ancestral Soul, Central African Republic's Boddhi Satva.


Boddhi has been one of the most original and prolific producers on the afro-house scene over the last decade. His early collaborations with house music legend Louie Vega, who was nominated this year for Best Dance Album at the Grammys, sparked his strong international take-off.

Since then, Boddhi never ceased to climb up, elevating the genre to higher levels of musicality and authenticity by working with musicians from diverse musical traditions across the African continent. From Senegal to Kenya, Mali, Angola, Nigeria, Congo or South Africa, Boddhi's collaborations have cut across all of Africa.

He's worked with superstars such as Davido, Arafat, Kaysha and Oumou Sangare and emerging talents alike. Check out some of his recent videos below.

This time, we're hosting Electrafrique right by the ocean at the lovely Ngor Yaatouna bar on the Corniche des Almadies. Resident DJ Cortega will be holding it down with Psyle, to add a healthy does of Dakar chili heat to the sauce! The event is co-produced with our fam at Kaani and supported by Vibe Radio Senegal, pushing new sound through the country's airwaves. Get ready to get down and dance because this won't be no posing business!

Get warmed up for the night with this new mix from DJ Cortega and see all additional info in the flyer below.
