It’s been a busy couple of weeks, with lockdown easing, but we are ready to catch a vibe with you all once again.

With that said, we are proud to announce the release of N’Famady Kouyate’s debut EP ‘Aros i fi Yna’ out on July 30th 2021 on Libertino Records.

The EP represents N’famady’s musical journey from Conakry to Cardiff, and features the first single ‘Balafô Douma’ .
This collection of songs are full of vibrant sounds and colours, a mesmerizing and joyous introduction to a truly international artist.
