Cafolla releases his debut album, ‘Cowboys & Africans’.
Self-released via Dusty Reel, the 11-track effort from Marco Cafolla – frontman Federation of the Disco Pimp – is available to stream now.
In his previous guise, Cafolla has collaborated with the likes of Pee Wee Ellis (James Brown, Van Morrison) and shared the stage with the Nile Rodgers and Chic, Sister Sledge and James Taylor Quartet.
His debut solo long-player, containing recent lead single ‘1985’, is described as a “no holds barred commentary about today’s society & ruling classes, it questions us all on where we stand.”
He adds: “the concept behind ‘Cowboys & Africans’ is that all humans originate from Africa (at one point in history) so as laymen, we are all ‘Africans’. The ‘Cowboys’ reference is to the people in positions of power…”
Produced, arranged & composed by Cafolla, the album was recorded throughout 2018 and completed in January this year, and engineered, mixed & co-produced by Ross Saunders at Glo Worm Recording & Dusty Reel.
The album’s official launch – with a 10-piece band in attendance – will be at Glasgow’s Oran Mor as part of Celtic Connections, on Wednesday 29th January.
