Literally, “break your bones” is a call to enter the dance and the trance. It is also a reference to the title of Fela Kuti “Confusion Break Bones” on the broken bones of opponents of the Nigerian regime. From Paris, Bordeaux, Yaoundé, Tananarive or 93, the group is a cosmopolitan group of musicians who draw inspiration from the heritage of the father of Afrobeat. With a hypnotic groove rhythm, a percussive brass section, poetry and explosive singers, the heart of Break Ya Bones beats to the rhythm of an energetic, committed and generous sound.
