Biography

BODDHI SATVA

Hailing from Central African Republic (C.A.R.), Boddhi Satva vowed early in his career to make a statement through a signature sound of his own. Ancestral Soul was born.
When music is the soundtrack of universal rituals – birth, graduation, marriage, and ancestorship, that’s Ancestral Soul; when music is simultaneously an tense argument between passionate lovers, a intense freestyle session between- or a revolutionary political speech by live instruments – kora, piano, sax, flute, congas, cello, balafon and turntables, that’s Ancestral Soul; when music takes over the night, positive energy is in the air and the mysteries of the unseen come out, that’s Ancestral Soul; when music conquers spirits, electrifies bodies and no word is needed to seduce, to serenade, to heal, to love and to share, that’s Ancestral Soul; when deep house music has modern Congolese rumba as wife, West African voices as mistresses, and urban R&B and Afro-Cuban rhythms as occasional girlfriends, that’s Ancestral Soul.
Boddhi Satva subsequently became a demanded remixer as “Ancestral Soul”
versions of mainstream tracks won over club audiences across the globe, in addition to recognition from connoisseurs and tastemakers. Osunlade’s Yoruba Records, Bob Sinclar’s Yellow Productions, Peter Adarkwah’s BBE Music, Tony Humphries’s Yelloworange are just a few music labels among many that released Boddhi’s productions.
In 2007 he launched Offering Records. It serves as the perfect place where he defies boundaries with innovative formulas and where promising singers and aspiring producers from different parts of the world find a launching pad.
2012 will see the worldwide release of the debut album INVOCATION on BBE Records, after it was released in Africa in 2011 by Vega Records, the label of the legendary Louie Vega. The latter hand-picked Boddhi in 2008 to be an elite producer for Vega Records and a resident of Vega DJ tours.
