farafi Short Info

Farafi is born of a spirited meeting between two exceptional artists whose forefront vision is to bring people together. Having in common a strong interest in African melodies, they came together to express their passion, philosophy and love for the arts.
At the core of Farafi are its founders Joy Tyson and Darlini Singh Kaul.
“The Farafi Collective is a nomadic entity which feeds as it travels. We shared a mutli-cultural and interdisciplinary history through music, theatre and dance which has manifested into this all-inclusive field.”
Started as an acapella duo, using intricate vocal harmonies and contemporary lyrics it quickly evolved into a full ensemble of international musicians that brings new dimensions to these beautiful songs. Together they cover a wide range of instrumentation that innovates in the spirit of Folk tradition.

Reaching from Mali to Ethiopia, from Haiti to La Reunion, Farafi fuses traditional and contemporary African music with reggae, Indo-European, Latin, and ancestral aboriginal sounds.

Since the winter of 2013 the project, started in India, has now preformed all around the world and collaborated with over 50 musicians.
In addition to their live performances, their work as a collective is to share and empower people. Farafi holds seasonal vocal workshops to connect people with the music inside themselves. It is through this engagement with their audience that they rise to enjoy the magic of creating music together.
Farafi will take you on a journey, which will leave you with a taste for more
