"Let the wisdom of the past guide us to the incredible vision of the future"
The AfrotroniX project is a multidisciplinary concept: a universe, an Afro-Futurist vision originating from Chad, with a panafrican ambition.
AFRICAN ALGORITHM - African fashion, African urban dance performances and digital art.
By actively instructing AI and its digital systems in the language of our African ancestors, Afrotronix with a forward-thinking perspective on rhythm and percussion, lead us on an extraordinary musical voyage into the profound and sacred African traditions and patterns. In doing so, they intertwine ancient codes and algorithms with futuristic concepts, creating a magnificent fusion of past and present. Afrotronix's electro Saharan blues is driven by Chadian Canadian guitarist and producer, Caleb Rimtobaye.
His unique sound is a new wave in the Afrobeats and Amapiano 7.0 tinged with Chadian saï, Senegalese mbalax, Haitian compas, West African Mandingo roots and electric Touareg blues, and transported on a juggernaut loaded with deep house, dubstep and techno grooves.
Afrotronix has won several international prizes including best artist at the Hollywood and African Prestigious Awards (2022), best African electro (2019) and best African DJ (2018) at the All Africa Music Awards.
His collaborations includes artists like Baaba Maal, Youssou N’dour, Salatiel, Lorenzo Jovanotti and Mbongwana star Brian Kennedy (Rihanna, Chris Brown).
Recognized for these daring musical mixtures and wearing the DOM, the helmet, symbol of an updated ancestral knowledge, Afrotronix is the first Chadian personality to experience international success, becoming at the same time a leading figure in Chadian culture.
