Between Kizomba and Afro-Zouk, Fode Baro's new album is made 100% for dancefloors. Including the hits Djamila, Denoncer and Pourquoi Me Quitter featuring Philip Monteiro, the sound wizard of Dakar. Based in Paris since 1999 a young Fode Baro goes to school during the day and at night, hangs out in the local African artistic community blossoming in the 90s. Fodé then meets producer Ibrahima Sylla who produces Ismaël Lo and Baaba Maal at the time, and together they release Yirikiki, Fodé's first Mandingo Afro Zouk (expression he claims to be his own) hit that automatically grants him success throughout the continent and gets him an award from radio Africa #1 in Gabon in 1999. After his success in Africa, Fode now wants to conquer Europe and share his conception of music with the world a dancing beat but words to think about. After Yanfanté, released in Africa in 2009 then in Europe in 2010, Fode is back in August 2013 with La Vérité. If he speaks of love in several songs like Djamila, Chérie, or in the forthcoming hit Pourquoi me quitter (featuring Philip Monteiro), Fode Baro shows also that he deserves the nicknames his fans (and detractors) gave him "Fodé the Agitator". In La Paix or Unité Nationale, he asks to the people to unite for a better life and in Dénoncer, on a hot beat, he exposes the politics abandoning his country, Guinea, one of the poorest and most corrupted of Africa.
