1. Product Details

Luka Productions presents Falaw an innovative take on West African Hip Hop and sample-based folktronica. A follow up from the acclaimed Malian new age inspired Fasokan 2017 Luka Guindo turns his focus to the rich cultural heritage of Manding music. Eschewing wholly PC-based sequencing Falaw invites a number of traditional performers to join him in the studio. Griots recount sage stories over Lukas sweeping synth pads while ngonis shred pentatonic solos to the crash of sequenced drum samples. Paying homage to the storyteller combined with regional styles of lyrical Hip Hop Falaw offers advice on modern living with heartfelt songs about loss love and life. Luka Productions is the creation of Luka Guindo based in Bamako Mali. With a musical training in West African gospel music Luka is one of Bamakos hardest working producers churning out tracks for scores of popular artists in the regional scenes of thumping electro Balani Show and lightning hi- energy Hip Hop and he brings this varied experience to Falaw. Tracks like BBNI offer Lukas version of the melodic Bamako Hip Hop banger while Fort features lush acoustic ngoni with looping call and response. In addition to his work sequencing and producing Luka plays a variety of instruments across the tracks performing vocals djembe synthesizer guitar and bass. The effect is both otherworldly while seemingly organic. Creating at the con uence of electronic and tradition Falaw is destined to be a future classic both at home in Mali and abroad. In a genre where all too often modern is used exclusively to indicate Western collaborators Falaw is a groundbreaking entry into homemade fourth world music and a sign of the future Malian sound music to come. Comes with full lyric translations.
