Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate Faya Available Now

February 18, 2014 — 

The collaboration between a rapper/beatboxer/singer-songwriter from Syracuse, NY and an electrifying African kora sensation from Guinea pushes genre boundaries and earns raves. Driscoll and Kouyate blend hip-hop, spoken word, funk, and soulful, accessible rock with Afrobeat, reggae and irrepressible African grooves.

 

"A boundary-trampling high-octane hybrid in which the lightning fast electrified licks of
Kouyate are matched by the explosive energy of Driscoll's rapid fire rhyming."
- Songlines

 

"A gloriously accessible collision of styles. It's an unlikely collaboration that works, magnificently."
- The Guardian
