“All colors, no genres”


Throughout his discography Brussels-born and raised artist Badi (aka Badibanga Ndeka) has crafted sonics that fuse together contemporary electronics with African influences. Born to Congolese parents, Badi’s exploration of these hybrid soundscapes is present from the very beginning on early projects like ‘Si je meurs’ and ‘Jump’ both of which dropped in 2011. Over the years, Badi’s output as a musician, vocalist and importantly a songwriter, has continued to evolve and grow, culminating on his striking 2017 full length album ‘Article XV’.

With a new album just around the corner, the Belgian / African artist shares a powerful Afro-infused performance of latest single ‘Mauvaise Ambiance’ as part of his A COLORS SHOW. With production from avant-garde instrumentalist Boddhi Satva, the track arrives with a pulsating club Afro-beat that boasts slick electronics as the perfect backdrop for Badi to reflect on the current societal landscape. Check out the intense performance of ‘Mauvaise Ambiance’ (which translates to ‘Bad Atmosphere’) up top and be sure to check out Badi’s new album ‘Trouble Fête’.


Fresh off his sensational performance of latest single ‘Mauvaise Ambiance’ which is lifted from his new album ‘Trouble Fête’, Brussels-based artist Badi is back for another stellar performance for his A COLORS ENCORE. If you haven’t already acquainted yourself with the Belgian-Congolese rapper, Badi’s sound strikes the perfect balance of Afro-infused electronic beats with sharp, thought-provoking narratives that paint an intense yet poetic picture of Badi’s experiences.

Having cemented himself as one of the most exciting voices to come out of the Belgian capital, Badi treats us to a tantalising performance of 2017 single ‘Kitendi’. Soundtracked by a sizzling trap-inspired beat penned by long-time collaborator Boddhi Satva, ‘Kitendi’ is a hard-hitting cut that sees Badi showcase his playful yet equally fiery delivery as he raps about the elegance and importance of clothes (“Kitendi” in Lingola). Check out Badi’s A COLORS ENCORE session above and don’t forget to watch his equally impressive performance of ‘Mauvaise Ambiance’ if you haven’t already done so.
