An exploration of the life of an immigrant in complex times, ‘Dépaysé’ takes its name from a French word that suggests a removal from familiar surroundings.
Taking on this latest project, Sinkane frontman Ahmed Gallad draws a deeper connection between his personal circumstances and his socially conscious messaging. The result is a bold, declarative album of Afro-beat and Funk that channels the Family Stone as much as East African musical traditions. Opening track and album highlight, ‘Everybody’ is a wonderful call to togetherness and community that should be played loud for all to hear.
