Hear its first single, ‘DADDY’.
Egyptian-Iranian singer Lafawndah is releasing her debut album, ANCESTOR BOY, this March via her own Concordia imprint.
ANCESTOR BOY is influenced by artists like Scritti Politti, Grace Jones and Sade, as well as Lafawndah’s love of the silver screen, with the Robert Altman classic 3 Women and Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s The Assassin cited as key influences to the record.
It follows the TAN EP, Lafawndah’s debut release for Warp, her stunning collaboration with Japanese percussionist Midori Takada called Le Renard Bleu, as well as two volumes of her Honey Colony mixtape series and an accompanying live show at London’s Southbank Centre.
