Michelange Quay



Michelange Quay was not raised on vodou. As a product of the diaspora, Quay discovered the practice going back and visiting Haiti. Inspired by the transcendent rhythms found in both vodou and electronic music (particularly Chicago footwork), he explores a visceral connection between the two forms in his mixes that he has dubbed "electro vodou." Listen in to these wild tracks, and hear Quay himself discuss, and pound out, the beats that enrich his sound.

The extraordinarily talented multi-media artist Michelange Quay is a filmmaker, electronic musician, and professional hypnotist of Haitian origin and self-described "intradimensional citizenship." His prize winning films Eat, for This Is My Body and Gospel of the Creole Pig are contemporary cult classics that immerse their spectators in a visionary experience of sensual, political and spiritual initiation.
