Baloji: Spoiler

An adroit convergence of funky jazz, French folk and traditional African music, “Spoiler” represents everything wondrous about Congolese-born, Belgium-based musician Baloji. It’s a powerful, playful track with plenty of appeal for its upbeat nature alone. That said, a thorough look at the (subtitled) lyrics reveals the song’s greater depth. “Spoiler” hails from Baloji’s forthcoming EP 64 Bits & Malachite, released 4 November on Bella Union.
