Daara J Family – Faada Freddy & NDongo D

In 2015 Faada Freddy had the Theaterzelt boiling over, now he’s back with NDongo D – and together the duo from Senegal are going to make the tent shudder. With an explosive mix of traditional songs from their homeland, James Brown’s funk, Bob Marley’s reggae, psychedelic sounds à la Pink Floyd and the swagger of hip-hop icons Public Enemy these two full-blooded musicians have caused an international storm. Their social engagement is another thing Daara J (in English: “School of Life”) have in common with the political rappers from the USA. Their lyrics tell of dangers threatening the environment, hopes of a better world for our children, globalization and African identity.
