Tiken Jah Fakoly

Tiken Jah Fakoly has become an icon on the African continent, and the most renowned francophone reggae artist in the world. His flair for combining catchy Reggae beats with serious and compelling lyrics has made him a mouthpiece for a whole generation of music fans, who embrace the political and social issues in his songs.

Tiken has been awarded several gold records, numerous prizes (RFI, SACEM) and a Victoire de la Musique, and is recognized worldwide as a dedicated and militant artist.

After the great successes in Africa (with only five albums released there), he became a big star in Europe as well, with multiple gold record sales and performances at the biggest festivals and in many halls and arenas. Live, Tiken Jah Fakoly is hard to beat for energy. In German-speaking countries, he has been a guest several times at Summerjam, Chiemsee Reggae and Sunplash Wiesen.

Press
„Mit seinen Polit-Songs in der Tradition Bob Marleys gehört Tiken Jah Fakoly heute zu den wichtigsten politischen Stimmen Afrikas."
ARTE
„Congratulations, then, to Tiken Jah Fakoly for an album that's refreshingly different. He has always been an outsider, an exile from the Ivory Coast who settled in Mali, where he has become a local star. [...] The result is an original and varied set that is helped by his soulful vocals and angry lyrics, including thoughtful songs in English and French."
