• Amadou Sodia's Ca Va Se Savoir positively drips with talent, not least Kante Manfila and Ousmane Kouyate (of Les Ambassadeurs and Salif Keita) on guitar, Djeli Moussa Diawara on kora, and Kerfala Kante & Sekouba Bambino on additional vocals. With its multi-layered arrangements that sensitively balance the electric with the acoustic, it is the perfect vehicle for a singer who is rooted in the past, yet singing for the present while looking to the future … ça va se savoir – ‘that will be known’.

"This is a confident, gently sturdy set that continues the Guinean tradition of balancing the old and the new, with traditional instruments such as the bolon, balafon and kora, matched against guitars, saxophone, flute and cello. Sodia emerges as one of the great under-recognised African singers."
