‘Fabiola’ began taking shape in 2010, when Chris Franck and Patrick Forge, finding themselves again single and with Forge having returned from living in Japan, took their first tentative steps towards making a new record.
Drawing together a worldwide family of collaborators both old and new, ‘Fabiola’ is the band's first album in ten years and features a host of talent including Luiz Gabriel Lopes (Graveola) (Brazil), Mayra Andrade (Cape Verde), Miguel Atwood Ferguson (USA) Rich Medina (USA) Marcelo Janeci (Brazil) Luisa Maita (Brazil), Fabricio FBC (Brazil), Sacha Gabriel(Canada), Jason Yarde (UK), Finn Peters (UK) and Diabel Cissokho (Senegal) who have all helped craft a record with a raw and live approach fusing Afro-Brazilian influences with a dance-floor sensibility.
