Joey Le Soldat 'L'Hivernage'

Burkina Faso rapper Joey Le Soldat's 'L'Hivernage' is the latest single from his forthcoming 'Burkin Bâ' via Akwaaba Music.


Joey Le Soldat, one half of Burkinabe hip-hop innovators Waga 3000, has dropped another track from his forthcoming sophomore effort Burkin Bâ. "L'hivernage" is a melancholy slow burner led by a testament to the rainy season and nature's fertility. It's a move away from the big bass of lead single "D.M.D," and a welcome insight into Le Soldat's eclectic sound. On his latest, rousing female vocals fade in and out as a backbone along with production from DJ Form, which together create a delicate atmosphere, skilfully balanced out by Le Soldat's melodic yet gritty wordplay. Burkin Bâ arrives February 11th via Akwaaba Music/Tentacule Records. Until then, stream and download "L'Hivernage" below.
