Zap Mama feat. Erykah Badu

Support 88Nine And This Artist:

Zap Mama is a Belgian musical group founded and led by Marie Daulne. Daulne says her mission is to be a bridge between the European and the African and bring the two cultures together with her music.[1] "What I would like to do is bring sounds from Africa and bring it to the Western world, because I know that through sound and through beats, that people discover a new culture, a new people, a new world."[2] Zap Mama specializes in polyphonic, harmonic music with a mixture of heavily infused African instruments, R&B, and Hip-hop and emphasizes voice in all their music.[1] "The voice is an instrument itself," says Daulne.[1] "It's the original instrument. The primary instrument. The most soulful instrument, the human voice."[3] They sing in French and English with deep African roots.
