SCROLL DOWN


“I WANT TO TEAR DOWN THE BARRIER THAT SEPARATES AFRICAN MUSIC FROM THE MAINSTREAM. I WANT TO GET INSIDE THAT SPACE AND BRING ENOUGH AFRICAN FLAVOR IN THE ROCK N' ROLL WORLD TO CREATE A DISTINCTIVE SOUND.” 

- FRANCK BIYONG

 


New PROJECT
ORCHESTRE LIPOMBE JAZZ
"IBOLO INI" 
Out JUNE 2017

"IBOLO INI" is a psychedelic journey beginning with the the rhythms of
pan-African villages and pygmy tribes, to the vibrant beat of Central African
cities. The album makes a stop in Paris for some analogue synthesis and
ends up in East Africa with traditional and ethnic instruments being fused
to create a dreamlike soundscape urging a fusion of the traditional with
the intangible.

Released on ADA CREATIVE / AFRICORI


  "LIYOMBA CHURCH"
September 2016

 

"Liyomba Church" opens with high-energy screeches and thumps
that won't let you go. It's a fervent and unabashed call to dance,
an astonishing Afro/pop crossover aiming for the clubs.

Liyomba Church's fast-paced guitar and drum pairing reveal the Afrolectric
ambitions Franck Biyong has been developing for the past 10 years, drawing influences
from rock, electro and experimental sounds.
