Edd Bateman’s in love - and he wants the whole world to know!
Summer 2016 sees the launch of Edd Bateman’s West African Love Affair - a band, an album and world tour - and the first mbalax song (“Billahi Walahi”) composed and sung by an Englishman.
Scintillating kora and marimba combine with relentless soukous guitar and subtle Senegalese mbalax grooves over a captivating Cameroonian backbeat - and all underpinned by Edd’s pulsating basslines.
If this doesn’t get you on your feet, bopping and swaying, after the first four bars, you’re obviously in need of an emergency groove transfusion…
Go and share the love with Edd and his amazing West African band this Summer 2016. Because when love calls - you’d better listen”! (©Glyn Phillips - WorldMusic.co.uk)
Recorded in studios and living rooms in London, Bristol, Salzburg and Sydney, the album features collaborations between Edd and a talented cast of expert West African musicians who between them have backed every major West African artist from Youssou N’Dour to Baba Maal and Salif Keita to Kanda Bongo Man.
