Find Your True North

Betty Bonifassi


Renowned for the warm, powerful voice identified as the heart of Les Triplettes de Belleville, Dj Champion and Beast, Betty Bonifassi returns solo to present her incredibly lively, swinging first eponym album, a tribute to black songs from the ’20s.

This album is a tribute to the resilience, dignity and beauty of the African slaves who were deported to America for labour. The African continent has shaped the American continent, deeply affecting its structure as well as its art, at a great cost. I would also like to thank Mr. Alan Lomax whose meticulous research as an ethnomusicologist made it possible for us to hear these songs a century later, so that we never forget what happened to them.
