Ancestral Ka distills a sophisticated and captivating sound, free from any exoticizing constraints, to gaze straight into the future. It’s a music of trembling. Attention, you who listen: epicenter ahead!

In the natural continuity of its artistic direction, KAPHONIC RECORDS presents a musical gem, ingeniously crafted by its artistic director, MOTSEK.

MOTSEK is joined by WOZAN MONZA, a masterful Caribbean tenor singer, and DOMINIQUE TAULIAUT, a virtuoso percussionist, both hailing from the fertile soil of this ancestral Guadeloupean culture. These three GWOKA craftsmen are joined by KEVIN TOY, a young multi-instrumentalist arranger and composer, well-versed in all the mythical sounds of the Electro world.

Together, they shape a creation that absorbs the ancestral traditional codes, adorning them with skilfully crafted minimal progressive house sounds. The rhythms of GWOKA are transported into a resolutely contemporary electro spiral, executing subtle back-and-forth movements between the ancestral foundations of the Caribbean and those House Music.

ANCESTRAL KA is an anti-journey that disrupts what we thought we knew about these dreamy tropics. A unique blend for a tropical mix: vibrant traditional themes combined with powerful controlled basslines.

With their debut single “Nou-Ka”, released in December 2022, the tone is set; no explanation is needed to understand that something new is happening…

Other tracks soon followed. “Kan Sirèn La Sonné” was released in January 2023, and the eagerly anticipated album “Until She’s Gone” was released on January 12th, 2024!
