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 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. From Senegal, Batch Gueye brings vocals, drumming and dance to the live show alongside Robert Plant drummer Dave Smith, Johnny Brierley on Bass, Tom Challenger on Synths, Saxophone and Phil Stevenson on Guitar and Kaw Secka’s high energy talking drum playing. 

 

"Fofoulah have set sail toward an original sound" The Wire

 

"Fofoulah build their spacious jazz-dub around the crackle of Kaw Secka's sabar drums." ★★★★ Financial Times

 

“Bravely adventurous"  The Guardian 

 

"Avoiding pastiche or casual borrowing … Fofoulah have set sail toward an original sound." The Wire

 

"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

 

"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
