Album Review

Francis The Great – “Ravissante Baby” – [Hot Casa]

humana   6/11/2015   12-inch, International


What were you doing when you were 7? Francis Mbarga was exercising his musical creativity as a budding afrobeat/funk/disco artist. He was born in Paris to parents hailing from Cameroon (to which Francis eventually returned), and when Francis said he wanted to get involved in the music scene, his parents provided the means. Read the liner notes to get the full, fascinating story. Enjoy the jazzy, upbeat music and the adorable vocalizations of this young prodigy who is fluent in French, English, and African dialects.
