Bonny Abraham’s latest track, “La vie est belle,” is a mesmerizing fusion of electronic beats and organic instrumentals, weaving together a vibrant tapestry of sound. The track showcases a harmonious blend of diverse instruments such as oud, handpan, didgeridoo, saxophone, clarinet, and African rhythms, creating a unique sonic landscape that transcends cultural boundaries.
