Boddhi Satva

Boddhi Satva

When it comes to dance music, few producers can claim the same authority that Boddhi Satva has. Known affectionately as the founding father of Ancestral Soul, Boddhi’s music has spirituality as the central hallmark and uses the thread of soul music to weave a seamless tapestry of African music styles, set to the pace of house music changing entirely the way the genre is perceived and experienced. An
alumnus of Osunlade’s Yoruba Records, Boddhi is the label owner of Offering Recordings. He joined house music’s elite after being hand picked by Grammy award-winning producer Louie Vega in 2008 for in-house duties within the Vega stable as a producer and resident tour DJ. As a DJ he holds down a residency in places like Middle Eastern Doha.

Transition is a notable departure from Boddhi Satva’s debut full-length studio 2011/2012 album Invocation, released on 2011/2012 on Vega Records/BBE Music. That BBE-released album was championed the world over by tastemakers including Gilles Peterson and set the bar for where Boddhi Satva takes audiences. Transition mines deeper into the diaspora of African soul. Production on Transition began late in 2012 as the Central African Republic-born DJ/producer returned to his native
country for the first time in 12 years where his father resided. “My father used to play a lot of Jazz, Soul, Disco and off course African Rhumba, “ recalls Boddhi of his musical upbringing. “I was exposed to so many musical cultures from both my parents. Outside of the house I listened to Soukouss, Ndombolo, Hip-Hop and R&B.

“My father’s love for good music led me to develop a special sensitivity, an ear to different cultures and sounds around the world.”Within months of that visit, Boddhi lost his father to sudden illness. Transition was created and released in his honour.

It underscores Boddhi Satva as a truly global cultural ambassador and testifies to the tenacity of the human spirit.
