Farida Amadou


A wandering walk through guitar compositions, distorted bass compositions from her first solo album and field recording from the park someday in November.

“The first step is to look at the view of Brussels at Place du Congrès while listening to the first melody. Then start to walk to the park (...) until you hear the music from the Kiosk Radio calling you. Then let yourself travel as you want in the park until the end.” — Farida Amadou

Farida Amadou is a musician, performer based in Brussels, Belgium. The electric bass is her main instrument since 2011. In 2013, she started to play a lot of different musical genres, including blues, jazz and hip-hop. Consistently named as one of the most remarkable new stars of the European free and improv scene, autodidact Amadou draws the most exciting sounds out of her Fender bass without losing sight of musicality. She has proven herself (inter)nationally in challenging collaborations with greats like Peter Brötzmann, Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Ken Vandermark, Marker, Mette Rasmussen, Hanne De Backer, Wolf Eyes, Audrey Lauro and Julien Desprez. Since their first encounter at the Summer Bummer Festival in 2016, she has been playing with English drummer Steve Noble (Rip Rig & Panic, Æthenor, Saint Francis Duo) on a regular basis and in 2018 she was even a part of punk-combo Cocaine Piss, (from Liège).
