Enlightened slam

Gaël Faye is a magician with words. A mix of poet, slammer and rapper, he draws on a wide range of musical influences: French rap tinged with soul and jazz, semba, hip-hop beats and Congolese rumba. Faye has taken great care to hone his subtle and moving pen to perfect a superb album, as usual. Lundi Méchant, written in Bujumbura and New York, hits home with its pinpoint lyrics, so true to the poet’s DNA. And with one watchword: hope. Breathtaking.
