Product Notes

Double LP version. Gatefold sleeve. Favorite Recordings presents Jongler, the first album by Pat Kalla, produced by Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart. Pat Kalla is a musician, singer and storyteller. Patrice is his birth name, in tribute to the great Lumumba! Lover of words, French language, and music of course, he was born in Lyon, to a Cameroonian father, musician and political activist, and a French and literary mother. On Jongler, he explores from his childhood the soul, the slam, the funk... and the art of telling stories, life being a great one. After years of touring alongside many bands (Conte & Soul, Legend of Eboa King, Mento Cloub, Voilaaa Sound System), several acclaimed tracks on two albums by Voilaaa (FVR 107CD/LP, 2013 and FVR 132CD/LP, 2017) and recently an acclaimed first EP revealing some hot singles such as "Lady Angola" or "Ancien Combattant", he comes back with this project to put a bit of primordial lightness in a rainy world. Jongler is a tribute to the African culture in honor of a father with "Sawa" origins, the tribe from the people of Makossa. Jojo Ngallé, Moni Bilé, Pain, Manu Dibango, Franco, Rochereau, Kabaselé, Fela, François Nkotti & The Black Style, all these legends' music has turned on the family turntable and the collection whetted the child's appetite. Through this new trip, Kalla revisits styles that are sometimes little-known to Western audiences, such as high life, makossa, Angolan music, afrobeat, afro-disco, and others. One could talk about "Franc CFA", one could talk about Jacques Foccart, but it's better to dance, because "the dancer seems naive, but his feet must be connected with earth to understand history." Backed by the Super Mojo Disco, a hyperactive band from Lyon with deep groove and positive energy, Pat Kalla offers us an anti-crisis project, where swaying and feel-good humor is mandatory! An album soon in the crates, beware; "c'est medicament" (it's medicine)!
