Fasiya is the critically acclaimed landmark album from Sona Jobarteh which draws on her unique musical identity. Having received widespread attention for its unique sound, this album combines beautiful infectious melodies with strong West African rhythms.
The album demonstrates Sona's abilities as a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, featuring her on numerous instruments such as the bass, ngoni, flute, guitar, percussion, and of course her distinctive vocals. Woking in both The Gambia and the UK Sona has pieced together a body of work which has established her unique position in the west african griot tradition as both a cultural preserver and a pioneering innovator.
Exclusive to this CD are detailed sleeve notes which include English translations to all songs.
