Huge amounts of excitement as we look ahead into 2014. Fabiola, our first album in ten years, is out now on Agogo Records and has been released round the world including Europe, Japan and Australia/NZ.
We were honoured to have so many talents at our disposal – our worldwide family never ceases to amaze. Guests include Mayra Andrade (Cape Verde), Miguel Atwood Ferguson (USA), Rich Medina (USA) Marcelo Janeci (Brazil) Luisa Maita (Brazil), Graveola (Brazil), Fabricio FBC (Brazil), Sacha Gabriel (Canada), Jason Yarde (UK), Finn Peters (UK) and Diabel Cissokho (Senegal) who have all helped craft a record with a raw and live approach fusing Afro-Brazilian influences with a dance-floor sensibility and our distinctly London attitude.
Order the album on I Tunes here or through the label to buy the CD or LP here. Or if you just want to check out some of the songs, use these streaming services: Spotify and Soundcloud.
