Discovered at Paris AFROPUNK fest, AfrotroniX is an original creation by the celebrated Montreal-based Chadian guitarist Caleb Rimtobaye, who has worked with international artists like Mbongwana Star and Brian Kennedy (Rihanna). With a figure embodying an Afro-futurist world and sporting a helmet of unique design, the Afrotron, this convention-shaking project blends electronic music, African beats and Touareg blues. Chadian saï meets dubstep, with mbalak, rumba and deep house never far off. The shows mix DJs, instruments and Afro-urban choreographed performances. At the crossroads of Montreal’s artistic dynamism and Chad’s cultural wealth, AfrotroniX provides a place for African music in the digital era.
