CKEIKH IBRA FAM • Single The Future (feat. Balla Sidibé)

Cheikh Ibra Fam • The Future (feat. Balla Sidibé)

Disques Nuits d'Afrique / Believe

Album Artist
Afro-pop / afro-jazz

Sung as a duet with maestro Balla Sidibé of the legendary Senegalese group Orchestra Baobab, ‘The Future’ is the last song the artist recorded before his death a few days later. In this song, Cheikh Ibra Fam sings about the future and Africa. Balla Sidibé added an unforgettable mystical touch by talking about what really matters in life while thanking God. Between modernity and Senegalese tradition, this Afro-jazz track, sung in Mandinka, Wolof and English, calls for dancing. The omnipresent saxophone mixed with tropical rhythms transmit a joy and a desire to travel that cannot really be explained. It is simply a matter of listening and feeling!
