East African Tour with Rocky Dawuni
“The sounds of West and East Africa were heard loud and clear on the evening of September 12th in Santa Monica at Zanzibar, and despite the diversity of the origins of the music, the result was surprisingly cohesive...Kenyan artist Nasambu later arrived on the stage, symbolizing the effortless cohesion of West African and East African music that took place that night. Faye also came onstage to play drums during her songs. Nasambu started off with Roof over My Head, a soulful number with a slow beat. Demonstrating her versatility, Nasambu switched languages, singing in Spanish on the song Aqua de Rosas which was performed in homage to the song’s creator Lila Downs...”Elias Jabbe - African Rythms Take Over Los Angeles
