This is a link to our Kick Starter page, through which we are trying to save this beautiful festival.
Festi 40 is a music festival in Fada a festival which i have been doing the sound for recording and documenting it, with equipment i bring with me. This festival
is amazing, the videos below are only a glimpse, the musicians there are from the best in west africa, even though a lot of them are hardly known in the western world. The Festival is loosing the small funding it is getting from Europe. Existing in Burkina Faso one of the poorest country in the world with GDP per capita of $1200 a year, it's a miracle it exists. Which brought me to try and save it by organizing a fund raiser with the help of FMA and music lovers from around the world.If you feel it is worthy a small amount goes a long way, and we try to give you back the most for the money you donate.
I hope you join us and save this amazing festival.peace and blessings
Solo Dja Kabako is a blind guitar player/singer and one of the most celebrated artists in Burkina Faso. I met him at the festival Fest-Tou - Festi40 in Fada in 2009. After the festival we got togeether in his house for a recording session in his courtyard. I pressed a CD for him, a few tracks of which are available here for free download, and gave him all copies of the CD. There are some short videos from the session available here.-Assif of Hopscotch Records
