Ferre Gola

Dynastie

On his eighth studio album, Ferre Gola delivers a refreshing take on his sound by blending modern influences with traditional styles. Over 18 tracks the veteran artist expands his sonic wheelhouse by weaving in sounds from various genres. The hip-hop-leaning opener “Royaume Kunga (Kingdom)” sets the tone for intriguing fusions that reveal Gola’s versatility. The reference to contemporary styles is palpable through the reggaeton percussion of catchy single “Rumba Trap” and shines through the salsa-esque composition of “Marionette”. The exploration culminates in the Afropop melodies of “Ifuniania” which is preceded by the polyrhythms of “Marathon” and “Ekoyebana Dedicace” that reinforce the Congolese singer-songwriter’s rumba roots.
