FOFOULAH

SATURDAY | STAGE 2

The London based afro-dub ensemble Fofoulah, have followed-up their trailblazing debut album (‘Fofoulah’/ Glitterbeat, 2014) with an even more shapeshifting and adventurous recording. Slippery sabar beats, dystopian electronics and echoing, shamanic chants ratchet up both the dub quotient and the dramatic tension. Creating a soundworld that is both earthy and urban, futurist and rooted - the new album ‘Daega Rek’ (The Truth) is brought into sharp focus by the rhythms and vocals of Gambian sabar drummer Kaw Secka and the vivid production of keyboardist/saxophonist Tom Challenger.
