Anakan Douma – 2008 –
Fanta Mara is a Guinean artist living in Paris. A previous chorist on many albums, she contacted me in 2005 to produce her own album. After taking the time to understand « Manding music », we delicately arranged and recorded the pieces with the help of her husband. Guinean artists came to record in my small apartment studio, and with great care and attention to detail, we were able to realize Fanta’s dream of creating a fusion music album.
