If my songs were maps I’d want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.

French folk artist

Piers Faccini

linked with

composer Blick Bassy

last summer

in a Romanesque chapel

and recorded

two tracks,

including the original

“Mother Time”

and a cover

of the classic

“Make Me Down

a Pallet on Your Floor”.

The latter shows Bassy

singing in Bassa,

the language

of his home country

of Cameroon.

If that isn't enough

of a motive

to get you to press play,

then I don't know

what else to say.

Get some culture

in your life today.
