Fatima is a soul-singer from Sweden, although residing in London for some time already, that really surprised me with the range of musical heritages she manages to include in her songs by delegating the beat production to a diverse array of producers. Her african influences (she was born to a Swedish mother and a Senegalese father) are clearly noticeable and she combines it with the modern western electronic and soul sounds she grew up with. ‘La Neta’ is a perfect example of the soundscapes Fatima manages to pack into just one single song.
She has definitely become one of my favorite artists of the Nu Soul movement and I find it hard to disagree when she says that “the combination between soul and electronic sounds is the future”. Her amazing debut album ‘Yellow Memories’ was also released only this month. She’s a real sure shot for the future of women in electronic music.
Genre: Soul / Electro
