“(...) Vodou Alé pays homage to the often-misrepresented practice of Haitian Vodou and the traditional ceremonial music that accompanies it. Chouk Bwa’s collaboration with The Ångströmers elevates this music with a more contemporary, electronically-driven production that still manages to retain the essence of Haiti’s rich cultural traditions.” Black Grooves

“(...) Although impactful, the production work leaves ample space for the Haitians to breathe without threatening to submerge their sound completely.(...)” Songlines ***

" (...) this collaborative union proves just how intoxicating and electrifying the voodoo spell can be. Given a sympathetic undercurrent and resonance of atmospheric electronica, the ritual sound and outpour of Haiti is reframed, guided into the 21st century. Not so much a novel direction as a subtle electronic music boost to tradition." Monolith Cocktail

“(...) Vodou Alé is a joyous blend of ancient and contemporary sounds, an example of the innovation that can happen when artists build bridges across different musical eras and genres.” Bandcamp, album of the day
