Afrikana Soul Sister
Led by seasoned Quebec multi-instrumentalist, producer and arranger Jean-François Lemieux (Jean Leloup, Daniel Bélanger, Ariane Moffatt), and completed by Senegalese percussionist Fa Cissokho and Malian singer Djely Tapa (named Révélation CBC/Radio-Canada for the year 2019-2020 in the World Music category), the trio embodies the unclassifiable meeting of West Africa and North America in a vibrant place where tradition and the thirst to create outweigh ego. Delivering its unique Afro-electro music infused with percussive yet futuristic flavours, Afrikana Soul Sister is the happy collision of landscapes and people who don’t usually tend to intertwine. Carried by frenzied rhythms and intoxicating grooves, the outcome is a stunning, memorable experience where one can feel the powerful complicity within the trio.
