Listen to Kadia, no. 2

And we’ve now put a second song online:

“Arachée du lit” on the Faritlizer music website>>

Listen free of charge!

“arachée du lit” – literally “dragged from bed” – with a haunting oud solo from Tareq Abdallah…and a weird range of instruments: a mandocello, wooden flute, Brazilian shaker and Christian slapping his thighs..

Listen to Kadia..

You can now listen to one of our songs, “Turn it down” on the Fartilizer music website>>

Listen closely for the “Kadia kids Choir” (a bunch of sons, daughters and nephews) singing on the last chorus.

Plus great trumpet from  Giovanni and a spoon solo from Christian…

Six songs are finished…

We have finally finished recording and mixing our six songs – coming soon online …. The songs sound great, thanks to Gabriel who mixed them and also played bass on the tracks. The songs are:

Le chapeau (2:51)
Sing it (1:45)
Turn it down (2:52)
Jette-toi (4:40)
Oh Manny (2:41)
Arachée du lit (4:37)

Tareq plays a lovely oud solo on Arachée…


Cuillères, mando-cello, congas, ukulele, balafon, oud et cuivres accompagnent dans un gai mélange d’influences la douce voix de Kadiata pour produire une musique rythmée et mélodieuse – est-ce du pop ou du nu-folk? Le
public sera seul juge…

Spoons, mandocello, congas, ukulele, xylophone, oud and horns accompanied  in a sunny mixture of influences by the dulcet tones of Kadiata to produce a music both rhythmic and melodic – is it pop or nu-folk? The audience will be the judge

Summer in Geneva…

Summer in Geneva is coming and Kadia have finally added bass to the six tracks we have recorded – big thanks to Gabriel, studio engineer who also played the bass on the tracks. We’ve also recorded the balaphon (African xylophone) and bongos with Dimitri – pictured above (a full-time clown in his day job, really…). It’s sounding great – we hope to finish it all…soon…..!
