"Bonga" Jean-Baptiste was born in Croix-des-Missions, La Plaine, Haiti, to a family with a long lineage of Vodou tradition. The recordings contained herein aim to encapsulate the very spirit of tradition that Bonga has fought so hard to uncover and preserve throughout the years. In these recordings Bonga is thus documenting and acting as a bridge, an interpreter that provides context found in these highly nuanced spiritual rituals. 'Boula' offers the listener a song based approach covering a wide range of rhythms and lyrical themes in a highly condensed format that carries over both the structured and improvised segments of a ceremony.
