Spanning everything from African rhythms of Mali and Senegal to northern charm and Siberian throat singing, adding Spanish gipsy traditions, flamenco grooves and jazz influences A Fo! is sure to take you on a musical journey you have not tried before. While referring to the seven-piece orchestra being made up of only women, A Fo! is also an expression in the west African Mande language meaning “play!” or “speak!”. This is exactly what the group does; playing and singing their way through a shared love for the many music traditions of the world, while speaking up and putting women front and center. Skill, talent and personal energy thus become three cornerstones in A Fo!’s performances, where the charismatic nerve of the musicians build bridges between vastly different musical genres, instruments and techniques, immediately striking a very real and touching sound.
