With her new release, Zandoli, Belgian-Caribbean artist Charlotte Adigéry proves herself to be a consummate storyteller. Sometimes patently silly, sometimes deeply introspective, Adigéry’s ever-wandering mind spins tales that are absurd and poignant and ridiculously fun. Having been taught the ropes by her Martinique-born mother - namely rhythm’s relationship to musicality and the importance of a sense of humour - Adigéry is a persuasive young artist who can sing about lizards one moment and latex the next. While never addressing love directly, Zandoli is a product of pure love and friendship. In the studio Adigéry is joined by collaborator Bolis Pupul, a descendant of the first and only wave of Chinese immigration to Martinique. After matching on Tinder, the pair began to explore their shared histories, resulting in heart-to-heart confessions that seep through the songs of Zandoli.
