ALBUM LAUNCH: Femi Temowo – Rich Mix: 6th May.
After a year in the making we could not be more excited to be launching our collaboration with Femi Temowo: The Music is the Feeling. A few months have passed since we took the orchestra to RAK Studios in late 2015 and it’s been mixed, mastered and is ready for your ears. We’ll be celebrating this beautiful album at Richmix on Friday 6th May. Joining Femi and the Engines Orchestra are his all-star trio featuring Karl Rasheed Abel on bass and Troy Millar on drums. More information and tickets can be found here.
Femi is a MOBO award nominated artist who is well known for his work with artists like Amy Winehouse, Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Roots and Soweto Kinch to name a few. On his critically acclaimed 3rd solo release, The Music is the Feeling, he continues to bring cultures together through a celebration of his Nigerian heritage. It hosts a beautiful tapestry of head nodding grooves, contemplative melodies and heartfelt harmony that comes with a contagious feel-good mood. Check out the video below to find out more.
‘This record is everything that’s great about music. It makes you tap your feet; it hits your heart, your soul and challenged your mind. We’re very proud to be have worked on it with Femi and are very excited for the launch on Friday 6th May. We hope that you can join us to celebrate the joining of cultures to make some beautiful sounds.’ – Phil Meadows (Engines Orchestra: Artistic Director).
