Fools Gold are a collective of musicians from California, about to go super-huge.
They’ve been listening closely to many an Ethiopques compilation and Congolese heavy weights Franco and Papa Wemba are also given a strong musical nod. Throw in an Afro Beat Groove, some cuban percussion, a horn section and hebrew chanting (yes) and you’ve got yourself something very new and very exciting.
Fool’s Gold hit London on 21st January at YOYO! / Notting Hill Arts Club. See you There.
South London’s Own Micachu & The Shapes has got on the remix duty (under the moniker M.A.T.H.E.S.) and created this monster. (check out her other mixes, especially her take on The XX- Basic Space.)
