Faada Freddy is a Senegalese singer, rapper, producer and label owner. Small bowler hat on his head, like Chaplin, from which escapes a forest of dreadlocks, oversized white shirt, worthy of a mobster from the 30s, Faada Freddy has his own style, at the same time old fashioned chic, and tough guy from the ghetto.
A cool zazou look that doesn’t only give him the street dandy look, but also sets the tone for ‘Gospel Journey’, his ageless and modern debut album. Gospel journey was made without any instrument, other than voices and body percussion, guided by subtle harmonies similar to Bobby Mcferrin, and pop melodies with a soul tone like Otis Redding.
Faada Freddy spans numerous genres and sonic territories: Classical soul and praise songs meet a cappella R&B, acoustic rock, punk, folk and indie influences and merge into a unity held together by Faada Freddy's voice. A voice that for its warmth, its melody, also for its sincerity was hailed by many as the great new discovery of 2015.
After a debut album that reached gold status in France, the Senegalese star is currently in studio to prepare his next album, to be released Spring 2023.
