"Perle de Culture" - RIVA & Bohio Music


Précil’s works springs from racine, a contemporary iteration of the vodou songs, rituals, drumming, and movement designed to engage the spirit world to bring healing or ward off negative events and energies.

Racine incorporated rock; with her band Bohio Music, Précil folds additional elements into racine: vocal jazz, soul, touches of R&B.

Précil translates this raw beauty on albums like Perle de Culture into music that’s light, complex, and earthy.
Working closely with Haitian-heritage guitarist and renaissance man, Monvelyno, Précil crafts elegant originals. “Legba,” a central spirit in vodou, the great opener of doors, starts with a spare dialog between Précil’s voice and drums, then broadens into a full jazz quartet.

Other tracks dive straight into funky acoustic grooves (“Sebon”) and breathtaking polyrhythms (“Ti Zandò”).
