After releasing an album dedicated to the sounds of the Middle East, Stronghold Sound returns to Africa for its second volume of Sembeh Ma Fa Fe: Roots Volume, which will drop Dec. 10. This follow-up to Stronghold Sound’s earlier Guinean compilation features an enjoyable combination of soul, folk, salsa and traditional djembe percussion.
Stronghold Sound’s producer Dub Snakkr collaborated with some of Guinea’s old and new generation artists: from Mybaby (Kadiatou Sylla) and her blend of salsa infused Guinean folk to Saran Diabate and Lanciney Diabate, a sister and brother duo that combines traditional Guinean soul with a funk foundation. The release will also feature dancefloor remixes by Captain Planet, Chief Boima, J. Boogie and the aforementioned Dub Snakkr.
