About This Episode

In today’s podcast we chat to the man behind the award-winning Brooklyn-based collective Snarky Puppy.

Always pushing the boundaries with an unbending work ethic, Snarky Puppy are tighter and better oiled than ever before. Inspired by Michael League’s earth-shattering bass playing, their recorded catalogue grows more impressive from album to album. And now Michael’s back with a newly formed project called Bokanté, which looks set to shape the next phase of instrumental world music.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • All about Bokanté and their debut album ‘Strange Circles’
  • Why Michael’s traded his bass in for a baritone guitar.
  • The latest news from Snarky Puppy.
  • We also hear from Bokanté vocalist Malika Tirolien
  • And much, much more…
