Fofoulah

Fofoula are Batch Gueye – vocals/dance  , Tom Challenger – sax/keys , Phil Stevenson – guitar , Johnny Brierley – bass ,  Kaw Secka – sabar/talking drum , Dave Smith – drums

“African drumming, trance grooves, dubby bass lines and rock guitar with plenty of spatial improvisation.” Uncut “Fofoulah’s foundations are dub and jazz, but these are beefed up with electronics, pan-African rock and, most persuasively, the sabar and tama drums of West Africa … The vibe switches from Ethiopia to Algeria to Senegal to Bristol in a heartbeat.” **** Mojo

“Really intelligent, infectious and effective … It’s subtle, beckoning with its toes in the ancestral mud, but this is modern music, intriguing, well-textured and very likeable.” fRoots **** The Guardian ***** The Independent on Sunday **** Financial Times **** Songlines
**** Mojo
