So Frenchy So Chic: Asa & Fefe - Keystone Festival Bar
Doors open at 8pm
The box office will open one hour before doors
Free entry after 11.30pm (subject to capacity)
Over 18s venue only
Nigerian-French artists Asa and Féfé come to Sydney for the first time. The sublime Asa has drawn comparisons to Erykah Badu with her smoke and honey voice and nod to 60s soul and Afro-beats. Hip-hop artist Fefe presents an explosive live show fusing elements of funk, soul, blues, rock and the odd ballad.
Féfé is the founding member of iconic French hip hop band Saian Supa Crew who has forged a successful solo career singing home truths with blues, soul, rock and acoustic sounds behind him. On stage Fefe is sometimes explosive, sometimes relaxed, but always driven by the audience and always memorable - as anyone who caught him at WOMADelaide can attest.
"He has that Michael Franti factor when it comes to manipulating thousands of punters into shaking their booty." - Iain Shedden - The Australian
Asa is both a modern pop siren and a brooding singer-songwriter with a smokey voice that stands her well apart from the crowd. She has opened for Beyoncé and sung with Lenny Kravitz, and her latest album, Beautiful Imperfection, is all about irresistible grooves with a nod to 60s soul and funk. Asa's Afro-beats and feel-good tunes are sure to get everyone up and dancing on the grass.
"When she gets her jazz groove on in Bimpé and Be My Man, you wish the songs would never end" - The Guardian
