Album info

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 has previously received 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. Please check our Kick Starter project and you can donate from there -  I hope you join us and save this amazing festival. peace and blessings,assif
