NEW VIDEO & SINGLE – Bantou Mentale – Mama Ho! No romance Digital Ep – release on June 7th, 2019

A dark, thundering Kinshasa meets Paris soundworld. Ecstatic vocals, broken beats, subterranean bass and full-throttle buzz. Bantou Mentale’s 5- song digital EP “No Romance,” is the four piece group’s scintillating debut. A string of firecrackers exploding on the club floor at midnight. Dubbed out. Fuzzed up. Seething with hardcore spirit and tranced out spirituality. The fulfillment of the group’s long-held dream, to create an African band with the weight and sensory attack of knife edged rock and hot wired electronics.
