We were really happy to have Fofoulah drop into Real World Studios over the Bank Holiday weekend for an intimate performance. Fofoulah is headed by an old friend of WOMAD and Real World Studios, Dave Smith (Robert Plant and the Strange Sensations). They describe themselves as “slippery sabar beats, dystopian electronics and echoing, shamanic chants ratchet up both the dub quotient and the dramatic tension.”
The performance was broadcasted on Facebook Live, if you were unable to catch it, lock in and watch it below.
