Event description

Description

Open-eared and experimental Afro-dub six-piece whose broad church welcomes sabar drums, electronica, jazz and dubby bass. As Mojo notes, “the vibe switches from Ethiopia to Algeria to Senegal to Bristol in a heartbeat”.

"African drumming, trance grooves, dubby bass lines and rock guitar with plenty of spatial improvisation." - Uncut

Batch Gueye - vocals/dance

Tom Challenger - sax/synths

Phil Stevenson - guitar

Johnny Brierley - bass

Kaw Secka - sabar

Dave Smith - drums

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


"With solid roots in West African sabar drumming, Fofoulah blend multiple genres to create a complex fusion of modern pop, jazz, rock, electro, hip-hop, prog and dub... A promising debut from an exciting and talented group of musicians."****Songlines (Top of the World album)
