Against the backdrop of financial crisis and principles of survival of the fittest, Batunga & the Subprimes elaborate on stage as it is in the streets their overwhelming afro-funk mix. Under the anonymous appearance of hyper-normalized yuppies, they reveal our humanity through the urgency of the present time. Dance, sing and play now, or never.
Since 2009, Batunga has been exploring the world, spreading the good word.
In June 2017, Batunga releases a new album called « Man in the Field ». Exploring the afro-funk continent, bringing in energical jazzrock and the euphoria of new orleans second Line brass bands, the album carries a subtle melancholia for the lost paradise, with some flashes of sudden joy, while keeping up a dancing mood.
