Gospel Journey – Faada Freddy

18. September 8:00 am

What does it sound like when Bobby McFerrin bows to Mahalia Jackson? Faady Freddy shows us how. A cappella, using only his vocal cords, the Senegalese hip-hop Dandy and leader of the legendary group Senerap Daara J, along with a five-member vocal band, fly on the wings of gospel way up into spiritual highs. His Rapflows come from jazz and combine soft and melodiously with the black music of African-Americans, without denying their West African origin, especially when considering the particularly engaging political lyrics. Goosebumps are guaranteed – whether one loves soul, folk or reggae; jazz or rap.
