Bass player, guitar player, keyboardist, composer and Grammy-nominated producer, Habib Faye has been the musical director for the Youssou N'Dour band for the past 25 years or so. He has arranged and produced most of the band’s albums since 1986. A celebrated African bass player, who counts Brandford Marsalis, Joe Zawinul and Darryl Jones among his fans, Faye has gigged, recorded and/or toured with renowned artists such as Mickey Hart, Manu Katché, Joe Zawinul, Paco Sery, Gilberto Gil, Chet Atkins, Mark Knopfler, Brandford Marsalis, Poogie Bell, David Sancious, Lionel Loueke, Tania St. Val, Jacob Desvarieux, David Sanborn, Mokhtar Samba, Carlinhos Brown and Angélique Kidj. The list is long. Additionally, his imprint on Senegalese music is indelible and is evidenced by the scores of albums he produced or co-produced with Senegalese artists such as Kine Lam, Ndongo Lo, Viviane Chedid N’Dour, just to name a few. Known as one of the most gifted African bass players of the last couple of decades, he is one of the champions of a new type of fusion that blends jazz with African rhythms to attain a more accessible sound without profaning the spirit of jazz. Habib Faye follows in the footsteps of fellow African bass players, Richard Bona and MBappé, who have taken the sounds of Cameroon beyond its borders and expose them to other rhythms and tempos. Habib Faye sings on all 13 tracks and duets with notable guests such as Youssou N’Dour, Angelique Kidjo, Julia Sarr and Idrissa Diop. Cameroonian saxophone patriarch and Soul Makossa guru Manu Dibango as well as drummer Mokhtar Samba and French keyboardist Jean-Philippe Rykiel also appear on this album. H2O is released on March 5, 2012 by Montreux (Switzerland)-based Odaras Productions, a label/management agency founded by Carlos Rodrigues who signed Habib Faye after meeting him in October 2010 . As of February 2011 Odaras Productions takes care of all of Habib Faye’s booking and management. The album was recorded and mixed between Paris, Geneva and Dakar, Habib Faye’s home base. It is now available in all digital media stores such as iTunes, Amazon, Fnac Music, Spotify, Virgin Mega and Deezer. On March 14, he performed with his band at the legendary New Morning in Paris. Habib Faye is among the acts playing at the Afrique dans tous les sens festival in May 2012. A string of appearances to support the album are being planned. So stay tuned.
