Favorite Recordings proudly presents Combattant first EP by Pat Kalla produced by Bruno Patchworks Hovart. PAT KALLA is a musician singer and storyteller. Patrice of his birth name in tribute to the great Lumumba! Lover of words French language and music of course. Born in Lyon from a Cameroonian father musician and political activist and a French and literary mother he explores from his childhood the Soul the Slam the Funk ... and the art of telling stories life being a great one After years of touring alongside many bands (Conte & Soul Legend of Eboa King Mento Cloub Voilaaa Sound System) and several acclaimed titles on the two albums by Voilaaa he comes back with this project to put a bit of primordial lightness in a rainy world: A tribute to the African culture in honor of a father with "Sawa" origins the tribe from the people of Makossa. Jojo Ngalle Moni Bile Pain Manu Dibango Franco Rochereau Kabasele Fela Francois Nkotti & The Black Style all these legends vinyls have turned on the family turntable and the collection has whetted the child's appetite. Through this new trip he revisits styles that are sometimes little known to Western audiences such as HighLife Makossa Angolan Music Afrobeat AfroDisco and others. We could talk about Franc CFA we could talk about Jacques Foccart but we will rather dance because "the dancer seems naive but his feet must be connected with earth to understand history" Backed by the "Super Mojo Disco" a hyperactive band from Lyon with deep groove and positive energy Pat Kalla offers us an anticrisis project where swaying and feelgood humor is mandatory! An album soon in the crates beware cest medicament (its medicine)!!
