“the Africa Express UK Train Tour 2012 was one of the most uplifting experience ever! i just stayed 2 days on the train but the atmosphère was amazing.
it’s magical because nobody came on this tour with his entourage or crew so you just have to connect and be open to the other artists…mostly some solo artist, mostly some individual, strong personality and they capable to form new musical connection
On stage I had 3 highlights 1. Rokhia Traoré and Damon duo on piano 2. Jupiter with they insane congolese rock track close to european trance and the dead prez
“hiphop” with rappers from Egypt, ghana, UK with Kano and Bashy ……that was monumental!
and backstage: as fan of Marques Toliver & Seye: plus that the guys invited me to feature on they songs so spontaneously it’s a nice recognition!
