Those who have been following this blog for a while might remember some posts about a project I helped produce in Dakar a while back for the Senegalese singer Faada Freddy (click here, here or here). The record is finished now, and is set for a simultaneous fall release in 14 countries. A recently released EP of three songs can be found here. Faada Freddy is playing tonight at the New Morning in Paris, and I think the live shows will be sensational. Like the record, the shows are done without any instruments, only using voices and body percussion. You can see an early rehearsal above. Faada’s Facebook page is here.
